Spectroscopic, physical, thermal and magnetic studies of tricine (L) complexesAuthor(s): Eman A Hassan, Nagwa Nawar, Ebrahim Abdel-Galil and Mohsen M Mostafa
New metal complexes derived from the interaction of tricine with some metal salts (Cu2+ and Co2+) were synthesized and characterized by spectral (IR, UV-vis.), magnetic, conductance and thermal analyses (TGA) measurements. The results suggest that L coordinate in bidentate manners via the COO and NH groups. Spectral and magnetic studies suggest an octahedral geometry around the investigated metal ions. Material studio program has been used for calculating HUMO, LUMO and DFT parameters on the atoms to confirm the geometry of complexes.
