ABSTRACT
The formation of complexes of tolbutamide and Zn(II) was studied in aqueous media at pH 3.4±0.1 by polarography and spectroscopy. The polarogram indicated formation of complexes between tolbutamide and Zn (II). Tolbutamide produces a well-defined direct current polarogram and differential pulse polarogram in 1M KCl (supporting electrolyte) at pH 3.4±0.1. The stoichiometry of the Zn (II)-tolbutamide complex is 1:1. Antidiabetic studies on the drug and its metal complex have been performed in albino mice. Revealing the complex to be more potent in antidiabetic activity compared to the parent drug.
