Metal Complexation Studies of 1-(4-Carboxy-3-hydroxy-4-phenyl amino methyl) benzotriazole
Aminomethylation of benzotriazole was carried out by treating benzotrialzole with formaldehyde and 4-aminosalicylic acid. The resultant compound was designed as 1-(4-carboxy-3-hydroxy-4-phenyl amino methyl) benzotriazole. The transition metal complex of Cu2+, Co2+, Ni2+, Mn2+, and Zn2+, of 1-(4-carboxy-3-hydroxy-4-phenyl amino methyl) benzotriazole have been prepared. Elemental analysis, spectral studies, magnetic moment determination, molar conductivity measurement and microbial activity of 1-(4-carboxy-3-hydroxy-4-phenyl amino methyl) benzotriazole and its metal complexes were carried out.
