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.||Source Title:||Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/52837||ISSN:||01620134||DOI:||10.1016/S0162-0134(98)10075-2|
