Green Route for Synthesis of Schiff Base Material and its Thermal DegradationAuthor(s): Gajbhiye RG
The present research paper describes the green route for synthesis and thermal decomposition studies of newly synthesized Cu (II), Ni (II), Pt (II) and Pd (II) complexes from Schiff base ligand P-Methoxy Isonitroso Acetophenone (p-MINAP). The reaction of ligand PMINAP with metal salts of Cu (II), Ni (II), Pt (II) and Pd (II) results in the formation of respective metal complexes by green synthesis till upto 90%. The compounds were characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, infrared (IR), ultraviolet-visible and 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic techniques. Thermal stability and decomposition behavior of complexes have been studied with the help of thermogravimetric technique at a heating rate 20°C min-1 in a nitrogen atmosphere.
