Synthesis and reaction of Schiff base 4-(pyridin-3-ylmethylimino)-pent-2-en-2-ol with FeCl3
MetadataShow full item record
A potentially tridentate Schiff base 4-(pyridin-3-ylmethylimino)-pent-2-en-2-ol was synthesized in the condensation reaction of 3-picolylamine and acetylacetone. The compound was characterized by H-1, C-13-NMR and IR spectra. The reaction of Schiff base with Fe(III) in the acetone solution and the presence of pyridine led to its hydrolysis and the formation of the octahedral complex [Fe(acac)Cl-2(py)(2)]. The structure of the complex was determined by the single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The magnetic properties and the molar conductivity of the complex compound were also derived.
