A novel ligand, N, N ''-(4-methyl-1,2-phenylene)bis(2-(biphenyl-4-yl)-N'-hydroxy-2-oxoacetimidamide) (H2L) with its Cu(II) and Mn(II) complexes were synthesized in this study. All compounds synthesized were also characterized by H-1- and C-13-NMR, the Fourier transform infrared, elemental analysis, inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry, molar conductivity, magnetic susceptibility measurements and thermogravimetric analysis. Vascular endothelial growth factor-2 (VEGFR-2) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibition is often used as a parameter for being a potent anticancer agent in docking studies. For this purpose, synthesized and characterized ligand was investigated by molecular docking study to test its inhibitory effect against angiogenic factors VEGFR-2 and COX-2.
