Synthesis of Some Copper(II) Complexes with Ligands Derived from the Schiff Base Reaction Between 2-Pyridinecarboxaldehyde and Aliphatic Amines
Inorganica Chimica Acta
As part of our continuing investigations of the influence of stereochemical demands of ligands on the spectroscopy of transition metal complexes , we have prepared a series of copper(H) complexes with ligands derived from the Schiff base reaction of 2-pyridinecarboxaldehyde or 6-methyl-2-pyridinecarboxaldehyde and various aliphatic amines . These imine complexes are structurally similar to some dicopper(II) complexes which have interesting optical and magnetic properties . The complexes, differing only in steric bulk, are a systematic method of studying the effects of the steric bulk of the ligand on the spectroscopy of the copper(H) complex.
