In the search for new therapeutic agents we have synthesized 13 new organotin(IV) carboxylate derivatives of (E)-4-((4-methoxy-2-nitrophenyl)amino)-4-oxobut-2-enoic acid. The synthesized complexes were characterized by several spectroscopic techniques. A chelating or bridging bidentate nature of the carboxylate ligand was suggested from the solid state FT-IR results. Solution state multinuclear NMR (1H, 13C and 119Sn) results reveal that the geometry around the Sn atom in triorganotin(IV) complexes is trigonal bipyramidal and in diorganotin(IV) complexes is octahedral. The ligand, (E)-4-((4-methoxy-2-nitrophenyl)amino)-4-oxobut-2-enoic acid, complex 1 and complex 2 were also analyzed by single crystal X-ray technique and the results fully supports the spectroscopic data. For 1 and 2 the geometry optimized by the single crystal X-ray analyses is distorted trigonal bipyramidal. The interaction of the studied compounds with SS-DNA was investigated by UV-Vis. Spectroscopy and Molecular docking showing an intercalative mode of binding. The evaluation of the screened compounds for cancer treatment displays even higher than that of the vincristine used as a standard drug. Similarly the performance of the tested compounds as an antileishmanial agent considers them very close in activity to the standard drug, amphotericin B. The antibacterial results show that the most of the compounds have a moderate sensitivity against the studied bacterial pathogens.
