Abstract: The reaction of CuCl2·2H2O with 3,5-diisopropylpyrazole (PziPr2H) in the presence of sodium parafluorobenzoate (Na-p-FBz) resulted in the formation of an oxo-chloro-bridged tetranuclear complex [Cu4(PziPr2H)4(μ-O) (μ-Cl)6] 1, whereas the reaction of Cu(NO3) 2·3H2O with PziPr2H in the presence of different benzoates gave [Cu(PziPr2H)2(μ-OCH 3)]2(NO3)2 2, [Cu(Pz iPr2H)3(NO3)(p-ClBz)]·CH3CN 3, [Cu(p-CH3Bz)2(PziPr2H)]2· 2CH3CN 4, [Cu(p-OCH3Bz)2(CH3CN)] 2·4CH3CN 5 and [Cu(p-CNBz)(CH3CN)] 2 6. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies confirmed these formulations. DNA binding studies for these complexes were performed by means of UV-visible absorption titration and viscosity measurements. Gel electrophoresis studies showed that hydroxyl radicals are involved in DNA cleavage in the presence of the complexes. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
