Study of percent degradation of copper complex with various solvents


Vandana Sukhadia


Transition metal soaps have their vast area of different fields like industry, technology and in allied science. Recently their complexes have greatly attracted the attention of industries and are finding increasing their application in different fields. The photocatalytic degradation of copper (II) soap complex have been studied spectrophotometrically in non- aqueous and non polar solvent benzene. Copper (II) Mustard complex was synthesized with N and S containing ligands. The aim of this study to observe the percent degradation of copper soap complex which increases with increasing amount of methanol solvent and further decrease with some extent. Zinc oxide (ZnO) was used in the photocatalytic decolourisation and degradation study of copper (II) Mustard thio urea complex. Intensity of light is measured with the help of solar meter (CEL India Model SM 201). Absorption of light is recorded by U.V. visible spectrophotometer (SYSTRONIC MODEL 106) at different time intervals. The various thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of the process were evaluated. Photo degradation has been considered in many reaction of biological, synthetic and industrial importance where energy received from sun can be better utilized for converting the pollutants into less toxic or almost harmless materials. The best way for the overall treatment of dyestuff effluent, is photo degradation. Photo-catalysis has proven as a booming field of chemistry due to its numerous potential applications. An attempt has been made to focus on anti-microbiological activity of copper (II) mustard thiourea complex at different concentrations with Staphylococcus aureus which may causes skin infections.
