The new complexes of Pd(II) with N,N-disubstituted-N'-acylthioureas:{[}(1) {[}Pd(dppf)(N,N-dimethyl-N'benzoylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PF6, (2) {[}Pd(dppf)(N,N-diethyl-N'-benzoylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PF6, (3) {[}Pd(dppf) (N,N-dibuthyl-N'-benzoylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PE6, (4) {[}Pd(dPPO(N,N-diphenyl-N'-benzoylthioureato-k(2)O, S)]PF6, (5) {[}Pd(dppf)(N,N-diethyl-N'-furoylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PF6, (6) {[}Pd(dppf)(N,N-diphenyl-N'-furoylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PF6, (7) {[}Pd(dppf)(N,N-dimethyl-N'-thiophenylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PF6, and (8) {[}Pd(dppf) (N,N-diphenyl-N'-thiophenylthioureato-k(2)O,S)]PF6, were prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, and spectroscopic techniques. The structures of complexes (2), (3), (5), (6) and (8) had their structures determined by X-ray crystallography, confirming the coordination of the ligands with the metal through sulfur and oxygen atoms, forming distorted square-planar geometries. These complexes have shown antibacterial activity against anti-Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv ATCC 27294. The complexes exhibited antiparasitic activity against Trypanosoma cruzi, while the metal-free thioureas did not. The. results demonstrated that the compounds described here can be considered as promising anti Mycobacterium tuberculosis and anti-T. cruzi agents, since in both cases their in vitro activity were better than reference drugs available for the treatment of both diseases.
