New tailored copper(II)-based intercalating complexes [Cu(L1)2] (1) and [Cu(L2)2] (2) were synthesized from Schiff base scaffold HL1 and HL2(E)-4-(2-((2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylidene)amino)ethyl)benzenesulfonamide and (E)-4-(2-((2-hydroxybenzylidene)amino)ethyl)benzenesulfonamide, respectively. The structure elucidation of complexes 1 and 2 was carried out by employing various spectroscopic techniques viz., FT-IR, UV-vis, ESI-MS, EPR and single X-ray crystal diffraction studies. The complexes 1 and 2 were crystallized in monoclinic P21/n and triclinic P-1 space group, respectively possessing square planar geometry around Cu(II) coordinated with N,O-donor Schiff base ligands. An analysis of Hirshfeld surfaces of complexes 1 and 2 were performed to ascertain different intra and intermolecular non-covalent interactions (H-bonding, CH⋯ πetc.) responsible for the stabilization of crystal lattices. Calculations based on Density functional theory (B3LYP/DFT), have been carried out to obtain energies of Frontier molecular orbitals. Comparative in vitro binding profile of complexes 1 and 2 with ct-DNA was evaluated employing various biophysical techniques viz., UV-vis, fluorescence, circular dichroism and cyclic voltammetry which suggest...Continue Reading
