Azo – Schiff ligand, 4, 5-diphenyl imidazole, Metal complexes


The research included the preparation of the New Azo Schiff Ligand derived from 4,5-diphenyl imidazole. The ligand was prepared from the amine reactor with the coupling component in order to prepare the azo amino benzayl amine. After that the last compound and 4-hydroxy benzaldehyde which obtained the ligand mentioned some metallic complexes were prepared for the ions of Cu(II), Zn(II) and Hg(II).The New azo- Schiff ligand complexes after purification were identification by using the available spectral and analytical methods such as Mass spectrum for the New ligand and (ultraviolet-visible ,FTIR) spectroscopy, CHN analytics', Atomic absorption, and conductivity measurement.

According to these techniques the New Azo – Schiff ligand was pidentate and the proposed geometrical shape was octahedral for the three complexes.
