Electrochemical Studies of the Interaction of Metal Chelates with Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin (AMX) is among the most successful antibiotics used for human therapy. It has a particular importance due to their effective against a wide spectrum of bacterial infections. In the recent years, the interactions between amoxicillin and metal ions have special interest due to their potential applications. It has been demonstrated that amoxicillin interact effectively with several metal ions due to the presence of a number of donor sites as several O- and N-containing functional groups in its chemical structure. Many studies have reported metal-AMX complex formation using spectroscopic and thermal methods. However, no electrochemical studies of the effect of metal ions on the redox chemistry of AMX have been reported.
