Characterization and antibacterial screening of copper surfactants


Asha Meena


In the applied areas of research and many industrial processes, the complexes of copper metallic soaps with some aromatic ligands are found very useful, in studying the biocidal activities of above complexes in non-aqueous solvents. These complexes have been analyzed for their characteristics in non-aqueous media and have been derived from copper (II) groundnut soaps with substituted 2-amino-6-ethoxy benzothiazoles. The synthesized complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, melting point determination and their IR, NMR and ESR spectral studies have also been done to understand structural aspects. In the present work, all these copper (II) soap complexes were screened for their antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. The chosen solvent in dilution is benzene, which results in affecting the aggregation of complex molecules and has the tendency to interact with complex molecules. Zone of inhibition have been measured in mm at various concentrations. The detailed study of aforesaid complexes clearly indicates that the synthesized complexes were found to possess appreciable bactericidal properties.
