Novel tinidazole (tnz) coordination compounds of different geometries were synthesised, whose respective solid-state packing appears to be driven by inter- and intramolecular lone pair interactions. The copper(ii) compounds exhibit interesting redox properties originating from both the tnz and the metal ions. These complexes interact with DNA through two distinct ways, namely via electrostatic interactions or/and groove binding, and they can mediate the generation of ROS that damage the biomolecule. Cytotoxic studies revealed an interesting activity of the dinuclear compound [Cu(tnz)2(-Cl)Cl]27, which is further more efficient towards cancer cells, compared with normal cells.
