Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Some novel surfactant-copper(II) coordination complexes, [Cu(phen)2(C16H33NH2)](ClO4)2 (A) and [Cu(phen)2(C12H25NH2)](ClO4)2 (B (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) were synthesized from the corresponding halogeno complex by ligand substitution method. The critical micelle concentration (CMC) values of these surfactant metal complexes in aqueous solution were obtained using conductivity method. The surfactantcopper (II) complexes were screened for their antibacterial and antifungal activities against various microorganisms. The results were compared with the standard drugs, Ciprofloxacin and Nystatin respectively.
