Synthesis, Characterization and Thermal Analysis of New Cu(II) Complexes with Hydrazide Ligands

A number of new complexes have been synthesized by reaction of novel ligands acetic acid(4-methyl-benzylidene)hydrazide (L1) and acetic acid(naphthalen-1-ylmethylene)hydrazide (L2) with copper(II) nitrate. These new compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, TG, DTA, IR spectroscopy, UV spectral techniques. The changes observed between the FT-IR and UV-Vis spectra of the ligands and of the complexes allowed us to establish the coordination mode of the metal in complexes. The results suggest that the Schiff bases L1 and L2 coordinate as univalent anions with their bidentate N,O donors derived from the carbonyl and azomethine nitrogen. Also the probing of thermal analysis complexes can detect which complex has excellent thermal stability.
