Infrared spectra, thermogravimetric analysis and antifungal studies of noval Cr(III), Fe(III) and Cu(II) 2-methyl-quinazolinone complexes
Some new solid complexes [CrCl3(L)3]×6H2O, [FeCl3(L)3]×6H2O and [Cu(CH3COO)2(L)3]×2H2O have been synthesized quantitatively by the interactions of 2-methyl-quinazolinone (L) with CrCl3.6H2O, FeCl3.6H2O and Cu(CH3COO)2.2H2O in a mixture of an ethanol-bidistilled water (1:1), at 60 °C. They were characterized by melting point, molar conductivity, magnetic moment, elemental analysis, infrared spectra and thermal analyses. The results supported the formation of the complexes and indicated that the ligand reacted as a monodentate ligand bound to the metal ion through the oxygen atom. The antifungal activity of the free ligand and their metal complexes were evaluated against several species, such as Fusarium solani, Rizoctonia solani, Sclortium rolfsii and Botryodiplodia and they showed a good antifungal activity to some selected fungal strain as compared with free ligand.
