Resumen:
 The synthesis, characterization and comparative biological study of series of antibacterial copper(II) complexes with heterocyclic sulfonamides were reported. Two kinds of complexes were obtained with the stoichiometries [Cu(L)2].H2O and [Cu(L)2(H2O)4].nH2O. They were characterized y IR and electronic spectroscopies and the crystal structure of {Cu(sulfisoxazole)2(H2O)4].2H2O was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. It crystallized in the monoclinic C2/c space group with Z = 8. The antimicrobial activity was evaluated for all of the complexes and ligands using the agar dilution test. The results showed that the complexes with five-membered heterocyclic rings were more active that the free sulfonamides while the pyrimidine, pyridine and pyridazine complexes had similar or less activity than the free ligands. In order to find an explanation for this behavior lipophilicity and superoxide dismutase-like activity were tested, showing that the [Cu(sulfamethoxazol)2(H2O)4].3H2O presented the highest antimicrobial and a SOD-like activity comparable with paharmacological active compounds.
