Abstract

New complexes were synthesized using a novel dimethylphenyl-salicylaldiminato ligand and various Co(II) ,Co(III), and Ni(II) sources. The Schiff base ligand 2-{(E)-[(2,5-Dimethylphenyl) imino] methyl} phenol was synthesized (77% yield) and characterized by 1H NMR and 13C spectroscopy. The reaction of CoCl2.6H2O with two equivalents of ligand 2-{(E)-[(2,5-Dimethylphenyl) imino] methyl} phenol afforded an intensely green colored compound (yield 51%), this was characterized by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The reaction of Ni(OAc)₂·4 H₂O with two equivalents of ligand yielded a dull dark green colored compound (yield 61%). We were unable to fully characterize this complex by NMR spectroscopy as it is paramagnetic. Microwave assisted catalytic studies have been researched into the alkoxy bond cleavage of triglycerides, with no characterizable results.
