Reactions of two diastereoisomers of 3,10-C-meso-3,5,7,7,10,12,14,14-octamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecanes, Me8[14]ane (LA and LB) with Cd(NO3)2 in methanol produced trans-[CdL(NO3)2] (L = LA or LB). However, the third diastereoisomer, Me8[14]ane (LC) did not react with Cd(NO3)2. Trans-[CdLB(NO3)2] undergoes axial ligand substitution reactions with KSCN, KNO2, KCl, KBr and KI, in the ratio of 1 : 2 to yield white solid products corresponding to molecular formula [CdLBX2] where X = NCS-,  [image omitted], Cl-, Br- or I-. Characterization has been carried out on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, UV-visible and 1H-, 13C- and 113Cd-NMR spectroscopy, as well as by magnetic moment and conductivity measurement. These complexes show different electrolytic behaviours in different solvents. In chloroform, they are noneletrolytic indicating that both anions coordinate to cadmium(II) with retention of original molecular formula [CdLBX2]; their 1 : 2 electrolytic nature in water reveals the formation of diaquo complexes [CdLB(H2O)2]X2. On the other hand, conductance values corresponding to 1 : 2 electrolyte in DMF indicate the formation of square pyramidal complexes [CdLB(DMF)]X2. The antimicrobial activities of these ligands and their complexes have been tested against some selected fungi and bacteria.
