Title

Tuning Up Superoxide Dismutase Activity of Copper Complex of Salicylaldehyde Semicarbazone by Heterocyclic Bases Pyridine and N-methyl Imidazole

Abstract

The copper(II) complexes of the Schiff base salicylaldehyde semicarbazone (SALSC) have been prepared and structurally characterized. The compound possesses a distorted square planar geometry where the metal atom lies slightly below the ligand donor atom plane and exhibits a longer Cu-Cl bond distance (2.226 Å). The superoxide dismutase activity of the compound can be synergistically enhanced by the addition of heterocyclic bases. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
