The syntheses of new oxovanadium(IV) complexes having general formula [VO(mac)]SO4 have been carried out by using in situ method of preparation where vanadyl ion acts as kinetic template for the ligands derived by condensation of 2,2′-pyridil with 1,2-diaminopropane and 1,3-diaminopropane. The complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, molar conductance, magnetic moments, and spectral (infrared, electronic, and electron spin resonance) data. All the oxovanadium(IV) complexes are five coordinate wherein derived ligands act as tetradentate chelating agents.
