Synthesis, characterization, and anticancer activity against human breast cancer cell-line T47D studies of metal ion Cu(II) complex with 2,4,5-triphenylimidazole ligand

The complex of metal ion Cu(II) with the ligand 2,4,5-trifenilimidazol has been successfully synthesized with mole ratio of metal and ligand 1:2 in N,N-dimethylformamide as a solvent. Complex synthesis results obtained green light crystalline solid. Complex absorbs UV-Vis light at 529 nm. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) characterization results indicate occurrence of bonding of metals and ligand that is Cu-N in region...
