Synthesis and physico-chemical characterization of a Schiff base and its zinc complex

Synthesis and physico-chemical characterization of a Schiff base and its zinc complex In the present studies, a Schiff base ligand and complex were synthesized by condensation reaction of 2-hydroxy-1-napthaldehyde and 4-methyl-1,3-phenyldiamine. The synthesized ligand was used for complexation with Zn(II) ions. A thin film of Schiff base complex was deposited by a spin coating method onto a glass substrate. The characterization of synthesized ligand and complex were carried out by various physico-chemical techniques such as FTIR, HNMR, XRD, UV–Vis and PL. The peaks in the HNMR spectra as well as important bands in the IR spectra are discussed in relation to the molecular structure. Presence of peaks in the X-ray diffraction pattern indicates the crystalline nature of the metal complex. Photoluminescence intensity of the thin film metal complex is enhanced many times compared to its powder form. Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
