Summary Cobalt(II), nickel(II) and copper(II) complexes of some aroylhydrazone Schiff’s bases derived from isoniazide (hydrazide of isonicotinic acid) with p-hydroxybenzaldehyde; 2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde or 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde are prepared and characterized. The study reveals that the ligands coordinate in the keto form. That transformed to the enol through the loss of HCl upon heating the solid complexes. The copper(II) complexes are thermochromic in the solid-state while the cobalt(II) complex, 3 of 2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde moiety is solvatochromic in hot DMF. The chromisms obtained were discussed in terms of change in the ligand field strength and/or coordination geometry.

UO2(VI), Sn(IV), Th(IV) and Li(I) complexes of 4-azomalononitrile antipyrine (L) have been isolated and characterized based on IR spectra, 1H NMR, elemental analyses, molar conductance and thermal analysis (DTA/TG). The study revealed that the ligand behaves as a neutral bidentate one and coordination takes place via the carbonyl atom of pyrazolone ring >C=O and the azomethine nitrogen >C=N. The thermal stability of the metal complexes were investigated by thermogravimetry (TG), differential thermal analysis (DTA) techniques and infrared spectra, and correlated to their structure. The thermal study revealed that Th(IV) complexes show lower thermal stability than both UO2(VI) and Sn(IV) complexes.

Complexes of Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) with 8-aminoquinoline were prepared and characterized, and their thermal behaviour and decomposition pathways were studied. The thermal stabilities are discussed in terms of ionic radii, crystal field splitting energy and steric hindrance. The effective roles of the counter-ions (Cl and NO3 ) on the decomposition temperatures and the final products were also clarified. The energies of activation (E a ) and the orders of some decomposition reactions were determined. Light is shed on the nature of the interaction of the water of crystallization and the polymorphic transformation phenomenon.
