The new 3,4-dimethoxybenzoate complex of Cu(II) with nicotinamide was synthesized and characterized
by elemental analysis, FT-IR spectroscopic study, UV-Vis spectrophotometry and mass spectrometry.
The thermal behavior of the complex was studied by simultaneous TG, DTG and DTA methods in static air
atmosphere. The infrared spectral characteristics of the complex is also discussed. In this complex, all ligands
are coordinated to the metal ion as monodendate ligands. The final decomposition products were found to be
the respective metal oxide. As it is well known, metal complexes of biologically important ligands are sometimes
more effective than the free ligands. In this study the new compound was synthesized due to its functional
groups such as veratric acid and nikotin amide, which have known biological characteristics and effective
in terms of both enzyme and antifungal properties from recent studies. Therefore, antifulgal activity and
enzyme inhibition properties of this complex have been examined.
