Synthesis of Metal Complexes Derived from Salicylidene p-Aminoacetophenone
Dr. Rashed Taleb Rasheed , Hamsa Ahmed Eessa

The Schiff base ligand (HL) has been prepared by the reaction of paminoacetophenone with salicylaldehyde. This ligand was used to prepare complexes of the type [ML2(H2O)2], (where M 2+ = Mn, Fe, Co, Ni and Cu). The resulting product was found to be solid which have been characterized using FTIR and UV-VIS spectroscopy. Elemental analyses have been performed using atomic absorption technique; the magnetic susceptibility and the conductivity have also been measured.
