The article deals with a study of a new series of transition metal complexes such as Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) with pyrimidine-based ligand (4-bromo-3-fluorophenyl)(pyrimidin-5-yl)methanol; the novel ligand has been synthesized through Barbier-type reaction and structurally characterized by 1H nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared, ultraviolet-visible, and powder X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) spectral techniques. The powder XRD studies reveal that all complexes are in crystalline nature. The cytotoxic activity of the complexes and the uncoordinated ligand against human breast cancer (MCF-7) and chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line (K-562) exhibits good viability in the range of 52.11-66.23% at the concentration >100-110 μg/mL as compared to the inhibition in the untreated cells. The result of antibacterial activity revealed that the complexes of cobaltand copper are active against the studied bacteria and fungi, and the cytotoxicity studies are correlated with the computational docking analysis.


Key words:  Barbier reaction, Lithium metal, Sonochemistry.
