Crystal structure, spectroscopic characterization, DFT computations and molecular docking study of a synthesized Zn(II) complex
The Zn(II) complex, dichloro[N-hydroxy-1,1-di(2-pyridinyl)methanimine]zinc(II), was synthesized from the reaction between ZnCl2 and di-2-pyridylketone oxime. The structural and spectral characterizations were performed by using single crystal X-ray diffraction, FT-IR, Laser-Raman, NMR and UV–Vis spectroscopic techniques. To support experimental evidences, computational results were obtained with the DFT/B3LYP method using the 6-311++G(d,p)+LanL2DZ mixed basis set. Theoretical analyses of some structural and spectroscopic results of effects of intermolecular Cl···H interactions in the crystal packing of the Zn(II) complex were investigated with the mentioned computational level. The non-bonding interactions in the experimental crystal packing of the complex were examined by Hirshfeld surface analysis. The HOMO and LUMO analyses were used for investigation of electronic transitions obtained with UV–Vis spectroscopy. NBO analyses were used to investigate the hyperconjugation interactions between donor and acceptor groups, coordination environment, electronic configuration and electron numbers of the Zn(II) metal ion and the natural atomic charges of the complex. The nucleophilic and electrophilic reactive sites of the complex were studied by MEP surface analysis. The static polarizabilities (α) and static hyperpolarizabilities (β) were analyzed theoretically to characterize NLO profile of the complex. The interaction with A-DNA (PDB ID: 1ZF6) of the Zn(II) complex was investigated with a molecular docking study.
