The paper describes the results of differential thermal analysis of the octahedral Fe(III) complexes of the general formula [Fe(HLn)2]Cl and Fe(HL3)L3, as well as of the corresponding ligands H2Ln (H2Ln — tridentate salicylaldehyde semi thiosemi- and S-methylisothiosemi-carabazones with n=1, 2 and 3 respectively). The decomposition of the complexes involving sulphur-containing ligands (H2L2 and H2L3) starts with sulphur elimination. In case of the complexes [Fe(HL2)]Cl and [Fe(HL3)]Cl sulphur evolves independently, whereas with Fe(HL3)L3 it is eliminated within the SCH3 group. In the former case, sulphur elimination takes place at the same temperature for both complexes. The change in the coordination mode, being a consequence of the replacement of O by S, has no essential effect on thermal stability of the coordination polyhedron. The complexes involving ONN coordination, realized with the H2L3 ligand, exhibit a comparatively highest thermal stability of the coordination polyhedron.
Several new complexes of dioxomolybdenum(VI) of the general formula [MoO2(L)S], whereL is the dianion of salicylaldehydep-hydroxybenzoylhydrazone andS denotes H2O, MeOH, py, PPh3, DMSO or DMF, were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, electronic UV-VIS and IR spectra, thermal analysis, molar conductivity and magnetic susceptibility measurements. Salicylaldehydep-hydroxybenzoylhydrazone participates in the coordination as a tridentate ligand with the ONO set of donor atoms. The complexes contain acis-MoO2 group and are of octahedral geometry. Complexes of the MoO2L type were also prepared by synthesis in CHCl3 solution and by isothermal heating of [MoO2(L)S] complexes. The MoO2L complex synthesized in CHCl3 solution has most probably a pentacoordinated structure while the complex obtained by isothermal heating of [MoO2(L)S] has a polymeric hexacoordinated structure.
The thermal decomposition of tetrahedral cobalt(II) complexes with 3(5)-amino-4-acetyl5(3)-methylpyrazole (HL) of the general formula [Co(HL)2X2] (X=Cl, Br, I, NCO, NCS) and octahedral [Co(HL)2(H2O)4](NO3)2 and [Co(HL)2−N(CN)2}2] complexes was investigated in air atmosphere in the interval from room temperature to 1000°C. Decomposition of the complexes occurred in several successive endothermic and exothermic processes, and the residue was in all cases CoO.
Complex formation reactions of copper(II)
and zinc(II) halides with pyridoxilidene Girard-T hydrazone dihydrate [H3PLGT]Cl2·2H2O and salicylidene Girard-T hydrazone [H2SalGT]Cl
ligands are described. The composition of the complexes, determined by customary
methods, can be presented by the formulas Cu(HPLGT)X2
(X=Cl– and Br–
), Zn(HPLGT)Cl2, Cu(HSalGT)Cl2·H2O
The structures of the compounds were compared by powder X-ray diffraction.
Thermal stability of the compounds has been examined by TG and DSC. The ligands
and the complexes were tested against some gram-positive and gram-negative
bacteria and yeast.
