Title

Nickel (II) Complexes of Naphthaquinone Thiosemicarbazone and Semicarbazone: Synthesis, Structure, Spectroscopy, and Biological Activity

Abstract

Ni(II) complexes of ortho-naphthaquinone thiosemicarbazone and semicarbazone were synthesized and spectroscopically characterized. the X-ray crystal structure of both the complexes describe a distorted octahedral coordination with two tridentate mono-deprotonated ligands. in vitro anticancer studies on MCF-7 human breast cancer cells reveal that the semicarbazone derivative along with its nickel complex is more active in the inhibition of cell proliferation than the thiosemicarbazone analogue.
