Synthesis, Characterization and Antibacterial Properties of Some Thiocyanato Bridged Heteronuclear Complexes of Nickel

Document Type: Research Paper



A series of heterobinuclear, thiocyanato-bridged complexes of cations [M(NH2X)6 ] 2+, and [M(en)3 ] 2+ (where X = H, Ph; M=Cu, Co, Cd, Zn) with anion [Ni(NCS)4 ] 2 –have been prepared by 1:1 molar ratio. The complexes have been characterized by FT-IR, 13C NMR and UV-vis spectroscopy, metal analysis, magnetic and conductance studies. The complexes have the following composition: [M(NH2 X)5 ][Ni(NCS)4 ], and [{M(en)2 }{Ni(NCS)4 }]n. The antibacterial activity of the prepared complexes against the gram positive, Bacillus cereus and gram negative Salmonella typhi, pseudomonas alruginosa, Escherichia coli pathogens also been investigated.
