Facile, mild and convenient preparation and characterization of some novel Schiff base ligands from synthetic diamines and salicylaldehyde
Some novel Schiff base ligands have been prepared through condensation of salicylaldehyde with synthetic various primary diamines under mild reaction conditions. The used aromatic diamines were synthesized in good yields starting from low-cost commercially available materials. In these reactions, the Schiff base products have been afforded with excellent yields and appropriate reaction times. The structure of these ligands has been characterized by IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR techniques.
