ABH, Coordination Compounds


The present report is concerned with the synthesis and coordination compounds of 2-amino(N-aminobenzoyl)benzohydrazid e [ABH]. The ligand was characterized by proton NMR, mass spectrometry, elemental analysis, and infrared studies. The ligand has got —NH2 moiety which is capable of chelation. Therefore, complexes of Ni, Cu, and Zn (II) nitrates were prepared. These complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, infrared, conductance, and magnetic susceptibility studies. Infrared spectra showed that the ligand forms complexes through —NH2 moiety, while the elemental analysis suggest M(ABH)(NO3)2 composition of the coordination compounds, ABH acting as bidentate ligand.
