Abstract:


Density functional theory (DFT) was employed to investigate the Bond Dissociation Enthalpy (BDE), Mulliken Charges, NBO analysis, Ionization Potential (IP), Electron Affinities (EA), HOMO and LUMO energies, Hardness (η), Softness (S), Electronegativity (μ), Electrophilic Index (ω), Electron Donating Power (ω-), Electron Accepting Power (ω+) and Energy Gap (Eg) in order to deduce scavenging action of the two new synthesized azomethines:

2,2’-((1E,1’E)-(1,4-phenylenebis(azanylylidene))bis(methanylylidene))diphenol (FD-1)

4,4’-((1E,1’E)-(1,4-phenylenebis(azanylylidene))bis(methanylylidene))diphenol (FD-2)

Spin density calculations and NBO analysis were also carried out to understand the antioxidant activity mechanism. Comparison of BDE of FD-1 and FD-2 indicate the weal antioxidant potential of these structures. FD-1 and FD-2 have very high antioxidant potential due to the planarity and formation of intramolecular hydrogen bonds.

Keywords:

azomethine, antioxidant, bond dissociation enthalpy, radical.
