Designer Ligands. Part 13. Synthesis and Catalytic Activity of Transition Metal Complexes of a Macrocyclic Ligand

Perry T Kaye, Gareth M Watkins, Kevin W Wellington

Abstract


Copper(I), copper(II), cobalt(II) and zinc(II) complexes of a macrocyclic, multidentate Schiff-base ligand have been prepared and, with the exception of the zinc(II) complex, have been shown to exhibit biomimetic catecholase activity.

Keywords: Copper(II);Cobalt(II); Zinc(II); Biomimetic complexes; Catecholase activity
