Abstract

An acyclic monoanionic tetradentate nitrogen ligand was prepared through the condensation of 2-(4-tolyl)-malondialdehyde and 8-aminoquinoline to give (BDIQQ)H where (BDIQQ)H = (8-quinolyl)-NCHC(4-tolyl)CHNH- (8-quinolyl). Metal complexes, (BDIQQ)MX, were prepared where MX = MgBr 2, ZnCl 3, and CdOAc 4. The spectroscopic and crystallographic properties of compounds 2, 3, and 4 were explored. Structures of complexes 2, 3, 4, and the tridentate ligand, (BDIQ)OH, 5, are reported.
