1.  Antispermatogenic Activity of the Benzothiazoline Ligand and Corresponding Organoantimony(V) Derivative in Male Albino Rats 
Triphenylantimony(V) derivative, Ph3Sb(OPri) [SC6H4N : C(CH3)CH2C(O)CH3], 1b, and the corresponding benzothiazoline ligand [1, 2], HNC6H4SC⎴(CH3)CH2C(O)CH3, 1a, have been tested for their effects on the reproductive system of male albino rats. The oral administration of both 1a and 1b at the dose level of 10 mg/rat/day produced significant reduction in the weights of testes, epididymides, seminal vesicles, and ventral prostate. Significant decrease in sperm motility as well as in sperm density resulted in 100% sterility. Significant (P < .01) alterations were also found in biochemical parameters of reproductive organs in treated male rats as compared to the control group. Production of preleptotene, pachytene, and secondary spermatocytes was decreased by 42%, 43%, 39%, and by 44%, 49%, 55% in the ligand, 1a, and organoantimony(V) derivative, 1b, treated rats, respectively. These results indicate that both compounds 1a and 1b are antispermatogenic in nature and on oral administration in male rats, and finally caused sterility. A comparison indicates that the organoantimony(V) derivative 1b is more effective pertaining to its antispermatogenic activity than the corresponding ligand 1a.

2.  Effect of Benzothiazoline Ligand and Corresponding Organoantimony(V) Derivative on the Reproductive System of Male Rats 
Benzothiazoline HNC6H4SC⎴(C6H5)CH:C(OH)COOCH3 1 prepared by the condensation reaction of aroyl pyruvate and 2-aminothiophenol has been treated with Ph3Sb(OPri)2 to yield Ph3Sb[SC6H4NC(C6H5)CH:CO⎴COOCH3] 2. These compounds have been characterized by elemental analyses and molecular weight determinations. The probable structures of the ligand as well as antimony complex have been tentatively proposed on the basis of IR and NMR (1H and 13C) spectral evidences. Both compounds have been tested for their antifertility activity in male albino rats. The oral administration of compounds 1 and 2 at the dose level of 10 mg/rat/day significantly reduced the weights of testes, epididymides, ventral prostate, and seminal vesicles. The production of preleptotene spermatocytes was decreased by 36.57%; 57.23%, pachytene spermatocytes by 40.06%; 62.01%, and secondary spermatocytes by 52.45%; 63.22%, following the treatment of compounds 1 and 2, respectively. The marked reduction in sperm motility and density resulted in infertility by 100%. Significant (P < .01) alterations were found in biochemical parameters of reproductive organs in treated animals as compared to control group. It is concluded that all these effects may finally impair the fertility of male rats.

3.  Synthesis and Characterisation of Some New Aluminium Derivatives of Schiff Bases Containing N, O and S Donor Atoms and the Anti Fertility Activity of the Derivative Al[SC6H4N:C(CH3)CH2COCH3]3  
Some new compounds of aluminium having the general formula AI[SC6H4N:C(R) CH2 C(O)R’]3 where R = CH3, R' = CH3 (1); R' = CH3, R' = C6H5 (2); R = CF3, R’ = -C = CH - CH = CHS (3); R = CF3, R’ = C6H5 (4) have been synthesised by the reactions of Al(OPri)3 and the corresponding ligands in 1:3 molar ratios in benzene. Elemental and spectroscopic (IR, 1H, 13C, and 27AI NMR) characterisation of these monomeric compounds reveals monofunctional bidentate behaviour of ligand moiety and the octahedral geometry around aluminium atom. Compound (1), AI[SC6H4N:C(CH3)CH2COCH3], has been tested for its antifertility activity in male albino rats. The oral administration of this compound at the dose level 6.5 rag/rat/day reduced the weights of testes and epididymides. Significant decrease in sperm motility as well as sperm density resulted in the reduction of male fertility by 100%. Production of primary spermatocytes (preleptotene and pachytene), secondary spermatocytes and step-19 spermatids declined by 56.10%, 44.42 %, 63.35 % and 64.57 % respectively. These results indicate that the administration of compound (1) in male rats brought about an interference with spermatogenesis which ultimately caused infertility.
