Metal complex, bis[(2,2’)-dimethyl 2,2’-(1,10-phenanthrline-2,9-diyl)bis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene)-bis(hydrazinecarrbo dithioate)copper(I)], was synthesized from the reaction of Schiff base, (2,2’)-dimethyl 2,2’-(1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-diyl)bis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene)-bis(hydrazinecarbo dithioate) and CuCl2 at reflux condition in methanol. The copper centers of the complex appear to be reduced. This probably was facilitated by in situ oxidative formation of disulfide bond at the uncomplexed ligand moieties. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals the distorted tetrahedral geometry around the copper centers. This compound crystallizes in the triclinic space group, P-1 with crystallographic parameters: a = 10.006(3) ?, b = 13.272(3) ?, c = 22.123(6) ?, α = 85.656(6)°, β = 81.656(6)°, γ = 73.097(5)°, μ = 1.223 mm-1
Four new Schiff bases of 1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-dicarboxaldehyde with sulfur-containing amines such as 2-mercaptoaniline, S-alkyl/aryl dithiocarbazates and thiosemicarbazide have been synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic and X-ray crystallographic techniques. A comparative study of the methods of synthesis has been made using both traditional and microwave techniques. A significant reduction in reaction time has been observed when the microwave method was used. In some of the reactions, the yields also increased significantly.
