Synthesis and Characterization of New Schiff Bases of Ethylenediamine and Benzaldehyde Derivatives, Along with Their Iron Complexes

Document Type: Research Paper



Two new symmetrical Schiff bases have been prepared by the condensation of ethylenediamine
and two benzaldehyde derivatives, 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde and 2,4-dimethoxybenzaldehyde.
The electronic transitions within these Schiff bases molecules in chloroform solvent have
been investigated by UV-Vis spectroscopy. The 1H NMR and IR spectra were studied and
assigned to related groups. Furthermore, Two iron complexes with mentioned Schiff base
have been synthesized by the reaction of titled ligands and transition metal ion, Fe (III) in the
ratio of 1:1. The iron complexes have been characterized as well.
