Nickel(II)-salen Schiff Base Complex as Anion Receptor

Salasiah Endud, Wong Wen Yee


The Schiff base salen was incorporated to nickel(II) ion to afford nickel(II) diethylamino-substituted salen complex. The diethylamino-substituted salen l salen complex were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), diffuse reflectance ultravisible spectroscopy (DR UV-Vis) and 1H (1H-NMR). The binding affinity of the nickel(II) diethylamino-substituted salen complex towards specific anion in dichloromethane was investigated by us
