The terpyridine complexes by transition metals have potential applications in the field of therapeutics, imaging and theranostics. Ni(II), Co(II), Fe(II), Cu(II), V(IV) etc., terpyridine complexes have been used as antibacterial, antifungal, antidiabetic, antiarthritic and anticancerous agents. Extensive studies of Pt(II) terpyridine complexes reported in medicinal field lack practical usage due to various side effects. However, it showed a gateway to prepare and study other transition metals which possess virtuous biological properties. Here, we report various works involving Cu(II) terpyridine complexes which are found to be potential therapeutic agents.



Terpyridine, therapeutic agents, Copper (II) complex, anticancer activity.
