Synthesis, Spectral and Physicochemical Studies of Mn (II) and Fe (III) Complexes Derived From Schiff BasesAuthor(s): G. R. Pandhare, R. A. Mane and Y. H. Deshpande
Ligation properties of Schiff bases derived from 2- aminophenol and substituted aldehydes have been investigated for this purpose. Mn (II) and Fe (III) complexes of these are synthesized and characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, magnetic, thermal and spectral studies. The complexes conform to 1 : 1 stoichiometry and are non-electrolytic in nature. The coordination of the ligand to the metal ions is found to be through azomethine nitrogen and phenolic oxygen of the Schiff bases in the octahedral environment. Most of the metal complexes show antimicrobial activity.
