Ferrocene-Derived Pyrazinoyl and Nicotinoyl Schiff-Bases: Their Synthesis, Characterization and Biological Properties

Received29 Mar 1999
Accepted21 Apr 1999


A novel class of acetylferrocene-derived Schiff-bases such as 2-pyrazinoyl-1-(2-ferroceneylmethylene)- hydrazide (HL1) and 2-nicotinoyl-1-(2-ferrocenylmethylene)hydrazide (HL2) have been synthesized and characterized by their IR, H1 NMR, C13 NMR and microanalytical date. The biological effect induced due to the coupling of ferrocene molecule with the aroylhydrazines e.g., pyrazinoylhydrazine and nicotinoylhydrazine has been studied against bacterial species such as Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa , Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumonae.
