Preparation and Characterization of New Mixed Ligand Complexes of (p-Methyl Anilino)-p-Chloro Phenyl Acetonitrile and Ethylene Diamine


New mixed ligand complexes of some metal ions Zn(II), Cd(II) and Hg(II) were prepared by reacting with mixture of two bidentate ligands [ HL = (P-methyl anilino) –P– chloro phenyl acetonitrile and en = ethylene diamine] in a molar ratio of 1:1:1[ M : HL : en] in ethanol . The ligand HL was previously prepared by Strecker’s procedure which includes the reaction of p- toluidine with P- chlorobenzaldehyde in the presence of KCN in acidic medium. The structures of new compounds were identified by elemental analyses, atomic absorption and thermal analyses TG/DTG in addition to FTIR and U.V-VIS. Spectra. The electrical conductivity measurements of metal complexes were also determined. From the obtained data the octahedral structure was suggested for all prepared complexes.
