Synthesis and characterization of some transition metal complexes of norfloxacin in presence of 1,10-phenenthroline

Author(s): Anamika Debnath and Dhanraj T. Masram

Five new octahedral transition metal complexes of norfloxacin with Mn(II), Cd(II), Co(II), Zn(II) and Cr(III) metal ion have been synthesized hydrothermally in presence of a nitrogen containing heterocyclic compound 1,10- phenantroline. The complex were characterized with FT-IR, C H N analysis, UV–visible spectroscopy. Spectral studies suggest that the norfloxacin acts as a deprotonated bidentate ligand. Thermal studies were also carried out.
