The solid copper(II) soaps derived from Mustard oil and Soyabean oil and their complexes with ligands containing nitrogen and sulphur atoms like urea, thiourea and 2-amino-6-chloro benzothiazole have been synthesized and characterised by elemental analysis, IR, NMR, ESR spectroscopy and magnetic moment studies. From the analytical data, the stoichiometry of the complexes have been observed to be 1: 1 (metal: ligand). The magnetic moment studies suggest the dimeric nature of the complexes. IR, NMR and ESR spectral details confirm that complexation has taken place successfully. The results indicate that the complexes possess elongated octahedral geometry. Conductometric studies suggest that the soaps and complexes are non-electrolytic in nature. The fungi toxicities of these ecofriendly and biodegradable soaps and complexes have been investigated.


Aus Senf- und Sojabohnenöl derivatisierte feste Kupfer(II)-Seifen und ihre Komplexe mit Liganden, die Stickstoff- und Schwefelatome, wie Harnstoff, Thioharnstoff und 2-Amino-6-chlorobenzothiazol enthalten wurden synthetisiert und mittels Elementaranalyse, magnetischem Moment, IR-, NMR- und ESR-Spektroskopie charakterisiert. Anhand der analytischen Daten wurde das stöchiometrische Verhältnis der Komplexe bestimmt zu 1: 1 (Metall: Ligand). Untersuchungen des magnetischen Moments weisen auf eine dimere Beschaffenheit der Komplexe hin und die Details aus IR-, NMR- sowie ESR-Spektroskopie bestätigen eine erfolgreiche Komplexbildung. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass der Komplexierungsprozess die oktahedrale Geometrie streckt. Die konduktometrischen Untersuchungen weisen auf den nichtelektrolytischen Charakter der Seifen und Komplexe hin. Die pilztötende Wirkung dieser ökofreundlichen und biologisch abbaubaren Seifen und Komplexe wurde untersucht.
