Two of coordination polymers of the general formula [Fe(BDC)(AMTZ)Cl]·2H2O and [Fe(BDC)(MBT)Cl]·H2O, BDC = 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid, AMTZ = 2-amino-4-methyl-thiazole and MBT = 2-mercaptobenzothiazole, have been synthesized and characterized. Structure of both coordination polymers has been evaluated on the basis of elemental analysis, thermal, FT-IR, UV-vis spectra and the charges been carried by the atoms, caused a dipole moment of 2.4346 debye and total energy -382 × 103 Kcal mol-1. Biological activity of the two synthesized complexes was tested against some fungal and bacterial strains.
