It was shown that the lack of fungitoxicity of some classes of square planar compounds can be altered by adding substituents that make the potential toxicant non-planar and/or dipolar. Corrections were made of errors in a number of published papers. Calculations were made to approximate the sizes and shapes of the perforations in the fungal wall

Copper(II) biscomplexes of 3-bromo-6-chloro-8- quinolinol and 6-bromo-3-chloro-8-quinolinol were prepared, the long axes ofwhich were 16.8 A and 17.6 A respectively. The long axes of the pores in the walls of the test fungi were determined: A niger (15.0 A), A. oryzae (16.8 A), M verrucaria (17.4 A), T viride (15.0 A). M circinelloides (not determined), and T mentagrophytes (11 .4 A). When the long axis of the copper(II) complex was was shorter or equal to that of the pore, there was fungitoxicity. When the long axis of the complex was longer than ...
