Abstract

A new ligand, 2,5-bis(furan-2-ylmethylcarbamoyl)terephthalic acid (BFMTA), was synthesized using 1,2,4,5- benzenetetracarboxylic dianhydride (pyromellitic dianhydride-PMDA) with furan-2-ylmethanamine (2-furfurylamine). New coordination polymers of the ligand (BFMTA) were also prepared using transition metal ions Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) metal salts. The coordination polymers and ligand were characterized by physico- chemical characteristics, magnetic susceptibilities, spectroscopic investigations, and thermogravimetry. Antimicrobial activity was tested using the agar-plate method against various strains of bacteria and spores of fungi. The results showed significantly higher antimicrobial activity of coordination polymers compared to the ligand.
