  • Abstract

    Metal chelate of bioactive metal ion Cu(II) with eugenol was chelated for improving the ligandís efficiency and the complex synthesized was characterized through FT-IR, TG-DTA, AAS and elemental analysis. The composition of eugenol-copper in complex was found to be 1:1 through Jobís method. In vitro antimicrobial test of eugenol, eugenol-copper complex and CuSO4.5H2O was conducted against phytopathogenic fungi Pyricularia grisea Sacc., Helminthosporium oryzae Breda de Haan and Curvularia lunata (Wakker) Boedijin through conidial germination test that revealed enhanced fungi-toxicity of the complex compared to either eugenol or CuSO4.5H2O alone especially against the former pathogen.
