|Title:||Chemical, Spectroscopic Characterization, Dft Studies And Initial Pharmacological Assays Of A Silver(i) Complex With N-acetyl-l-cysteine|
|Abstract:||A new silver(I) complex with N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC) of composition AgC5H8NO3S·H2O was synthesized and characterized by a set of chemical and spectroscopic measurements. Solid-state 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (SSNMR) and infrared (IR) analyses indicate the coordination of the ligand to Ag(I) through the sulfur atom. The Ag-NAC complex is slightly soluble in dimethyl sulfoxide. It is insoluble in water, methanol, ethanol, acetone and hexane. Antibacterial activity of the silver complex with N-acetyl-l-cysteine (Ag-NAC) was evaluated by antibiogram assays using the disc diffusion method. The compound showed an effective antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (Gram-positive), Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Gram-negative) bacterial cells. Biological analysis for evaluation of a potential cytotoxic effect of Ag-NAC was performed using HeLa cells derived from human cervical adenocarcinoma. The complex presented a significant cytotoxic activity, inducing 80% of cell death at a concentration of 200 μmol L-1. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.|
