Complexes of the diuretic benzothiadiazine derivative chlorothiazide (6-chloro-7-sulfamoyl- 1,2,4-benzothiadiazine-1,1-dioxide) with V(IV); Fe(II); Co(II); Ni(II); Cu(II), Ag(I) and U(VI) were prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, spectroscopic, thermogravimetric, magnetic and conductimetric measurements. The complexes behave as effective inhibitors for two isozymes (I and II) of carbonic anhydrase (CA).
