Synthesis, structural studies and biological activity of novel Cu(II) complexes with thiourea derivatives of 4-azatricyclo[5.2.1.02,6]dec-8-ene-3,5-dione
The new Cu(II) complexes of 1/2/3-(bromophenyl)-3-(1,7,8,9-tetramethyl-3,5-dioxo-4-azatricyclo[5.2.1.02,6]dec-8-en-4-yl)thiourea derivatives have been synthesized. The spectroscopic studies together with DFT calculations of Cu(II) complexes revealed that two parent ligands coordinate to the copper cation in bidentate fashion via thiocarbonyl S and deprotonated N atoms forming rarely observed four-membered chelate ring, with nearly planar [CuN2S2] moiety. In solid state, the mononuclear complex is formed for thiourea derivative with 3-bromophenyl, whereas for Cu(II) connection with 2- and 4-bromophenyl-thioureas the formation of dinuclear complexes is observed, the latter formed by the stacking of mononuclear complexes. The microbiological activity of novel compounds has been evaluated. The Cu(II) complex with 4-bromophenyl ring connected to the thiourea moiety showed significant inhibition against standard strains of S. aureus and S. epidermidis. The range of MIC values is 2–4μg/mL. That compound exhibited antibiofilm potency and effectively inhibited the formation of biofilm of methicillin-susceptive strain of S. epidermidis ATCC 12228. Moreover, the cytotoxicity against the MT-4 cells of all obtained complexes has been evaluated. The complexes turned out to be non-cytotoxic for exponentially growing MT-4.
