Synthesis, Characterization and Antimicrobial Studies of some Mixed Ligand Ternary Metal Complexes


Mixed-ligand ternary complexes of metal ions such as Cu2+, Zn2+, and Ni2+ containing benzimidazole or 2-methyl benzimidazole and amino acids (aspartic acid and glutamic acid) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, UV-Visible spectral studies and molar conductivity measurement. The synthesized ternary complexes were also tested for their antibacterial activities, and the order of the metal complexes in terms of their antibacterial activities was found to be Cu2+ > Zn2+ > Ni2+.
