Graphical Abstract:


Background: Thermal degradation has attracted the attention of scientific community throughout the world due to its multiple applications in environment, energy, waste water treatment, pollution control, green chemistry, etc.

Objective: The present work deals with the study of synthesis and characterization of thermal and biological properties of novel copper complex.

Methods: Chemical structures of copper (II) sesame 2-amino-6-ethoxy benzothiazole complex were confirmed by IR, NMR, and ESR techniques. Thermal and biological properties were analysed by Thermogravimetry (TGA) and antimicrobial activity determination against Staphylococcus aureus.

Results: The TGA study reveals that copper (II) sesame 2-amino-6-ethoxy benzothiazole complex undergoes stepwise thermal degradation of ligand-soap bond of complex and unsaturated and saturated fatty acid components of edible oils. The complex exhibit significant antimicrobial activities against Staphylococcus aureus.

Conclusion: This study provides relevant basic information on the thermal and antimicrobial properties of new copper (II) bio-based surfactants, as well as an explicit relationship structure-biological activity for their potential use as safe and green chemicals.

Keywords: Antimicrobial activities, copper surfactants, edible oils, kinetic parameters, thermodynamic parameters, thermogravimetric analysis.
