Luminescent Closed Shell Nickel(II) Pyridyl-azo-oximates and the Open Shell Anion Radical Congener: Molecular and Electronic Structure, Ligand Redox and Biological Activity

Abstract

Luminescent nickel(II) complexes of type [NiII(L−I)2], 2 have been synthesized using photosensitizer redox-active oxime ligands HL, 1 ,incorporating the π-acidic azo and pyridyl functions. The redox non-innocent behaviour of ligand has been exploited to isolate the open shell Ni(II)-bound azo-oxime anion radical complexes of type Et4N[NiII{(L−I)2}•−], 3via reduction with NaBH4. The superior stabilization of the unpaired spin over the ligand framework has been established by EPR and DFT studies. Anti-bacterial activity of 2 has been scrutinized and it has been found to exhibit potential radical scavenging activity.
