During his one-year postdoc in our labs Božidar Čobeljić introduced Schiff base ligands to our research group. Fruitful cooperation with Belgrade group in last years results in several recent papers which focus on the systemic synthesis and studies of heterocyclic Schiff base ligands of Girard’s reagents and their 3d metal complexes. Further papers are in preparation.
- Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry (IF 2016 = 3.348): Synthesis, characterization and crystal structures of two pentagonal-bipyramidal Fe(III) complexes with dihydrazone of 2,6-diacetylpyridine and Girard’s T reagent. Anticancer properties of various metal complexes of the same ligand.
- Polyhedron (IF 2016 = 1.926): Synthesis, crystal structure, magnetic properties and DFT study of dinuclear Ni(II) complex with the condensation product of 2-quinolinecarboxaldehyde and Girard’s T reagent
- Journal of Coordination Chemistry (IF 2016 = 1.795): Synthesis, crystal structures and antimicrobial activity of azido and isocyanato Zn(II) complexes with the condensation product of 2-quinolinecarboxaldehyde and Girard’s T reagent
Congratulations to Božidar for the great publications and a big ‘’thank you’’ to all other co-authors for all the hard work.
