Synthesis and Characterization of Co+2,Ni+2,Cu+2 ,Zn+2 and Hg+2 Complexes With 1,1,2,2-Tetrakis (Sodium Thiolactate) Ethylene

  • N. H. Buttrus University of Mosul
Keywords: sodium thiolactate, direct reaction, tetranuclear complexes


The new ligand 1,1,2,2-tetrakis(sodium thiolactate) ethylene, has been prepared from the reaction of disodium salt of thiolactic acid and tetrachloroethylene in (4:1) molar ratio. Di and tetranuclear complexes were obtained by direct reaction of the above ligand with Co+2,Ni+2,Cu+2 , Zn+2 and Hg+2 metal ion in (1:2) and (1:4) ligand to metal molar ratio.

The prepared complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, spectral studies (FTIR.,UV/vis), magnetic measurements, conductivity measurements. Electronic spectra and magnetic moment values indicate the presence of tetrahedral geometric around the metal ions.
