    Abstract: A high yield (74.63%) bidentate Schiff base ligand was synthesized from the condensation reaction of 4-aminophenol and 4-diethylamino-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde by the reflux method. Its transition metal complexes of Ni, Cu and Zn were prepared from the corresponding metal salts in methanol solution using the same procedure. The chemical structure of th... Show More
