Two new 1:1 adducts of VO(dedtc)2, two 1:1 and two 1:2 adducts of Cu(dedtc)2 (where dedtc = diethyldithiocarbamate) with n-propylamine and isopropylamine have been prepared. The resulting complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic susceptibility, IR and UV-Vis spectral and TGA/DTA techniques. Analytical data reveals that VO(IV) complex forms only 1:1 adducts with the formula [VO(dedtc)2L] while Cu(II) complex forms both 1:1 and 1:2 adducts with 1:1 adducts having general formula Cu(dedtc)2. L and 1:2 adducts having general formula Cu(dedtc)2.L2 (L = n-propylamine and isopropylamine). Antifungal activity of some complexes has been carried out against the fungal strain Sclerotium rolfsii. Electronic and magnetic measurements indicate a square pyramidal geometry for the 1:1 adducts of Cu(II) complex and an octahedral geometry for the 1:1 adducts of VO(IV) complex and for the 1:2 adducts of Cu(II) complex.
