Ditolyldithiophosphates of Cerium(III) : Synthesis, Spectroscopic and Thermal Characterization and Antimicrobial Screening

Authors(2) :-Atiya Syed, Seema Verma

Ditolyldithiophosphate complexes of cerium(III) corresponding to [{(ArO)2PS2}3Ce] (Ar = o-, m-, p-CH3C6H4 and p-Cl-m-CH3C6H3), have been synthesized and characterized by various physico-chemical techniques like elemental analyses, mass, IR, NMR (1H, 13C and  31P) spectral studies. A six coordinated cerium atom has been established in the complexes. The thermogravimetric analysis has been carried out which was consistent with the characteristic decline in weight of dithiophosphate complexes resulting in CeS2 as the final residue which is formed by oxidation of Ce(III) to Ce(IV). Antimicrobial screening of the complexes against two bacterial strains: Gram–negative, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Gram–positive, Bacillus cereus and fungus Penicillium chrysogenum have shown potential bioactivity.
