Platinum(II), Structural analysis, Antimicrobial activity, GC-MS Analysis, Anticancer activity


A Pt(II) complex including quercetin, naringinin, and apigenin was made in the
current study, and its structural characteristics were determined utilizing spectrum
techniques. The Pt(II) complexes have been investigated for their ability to combat
microorganisms and breast cancer. According to the findings of the investigation into
the complex's antibacterial action, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Candida
alblicans, and Aspergillus niger were all considerably impacted. Using the 2,2-
Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazylradical scavenging activity assay (DPPH), it was examined
whether the Pt(II) complexes have antioxidant qualities and may be useful in the
treatment of disorders caused by free radicals. These novel complexes may be
exploited for these therapeutic purposes, according to this study's findings.
