Abstract: A series of acylhydrazones of salicylaldehyde and their transition metal complexes, predominantly copper(II), have been prepared and characterized. The crystal structure of the Cu(II) complex of the sterically hindered t- butyl derivative contains a phenolato bridged dimer with the ligand coordinated as a tridentate moiety. QSAR analyses of the cytotoxicity of the chelators and their Cu(II) complexes reveals that solubility is the dominant factor for activity. Compounds display a maximum with respect to lipophilicity, allowing optimization of the bioactivity for both the ligands and their complexes. Copper complexes are significantly more cytotoxic than the metal-free ligands and complexes of other metals: Cu > Ni > Zn = Mn > Fe = Cr > Co.
