(E)-2-(3-Hydroxy-4-methoxybenzylidene)hydrazinecarbothioamide 3 was synthesized by reacting thiosemicarbazide with 2-hydorxy-3-methoxybenzaldehyde in dry ethanol. The structure was elucidated by spectroscopic (FT-IR, H-1 NMR, and C-13 NMR) and single crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. A detailed analysis of the intermolecular interactions has been performed based on the Hirshfeld surfaces and their associated two-dimensional fingerprint plots. DFT, spectroscopic, and electrochemical DNA-binding analysis confirmed that the compound is reactive to bind with DNA. Viscometric studies suggested that compound 3 has a mixed mode of interaction and intercalated into the DNA base pairs predominantly along with the possibility of electrostatic interactions.
