Abstract

Mononuclear Mn(III) complexes have been prepared via the Mn(II) reaction of an equimolar of Schiff-bases derived from reaction of 2-hydroxy-3- methoxybenzaldehyde or 2-hydroxy-5-methoxybenzaldehyde with 1,2-diaminopropane. Axial ligands L include: pyridine (py) and H2O. The resulting complexes have been characterized by FT-IR and UV-vis spectroscopy. The crystal structures of the complexes were determined and indicate that in the solid state the complex adopts a slightly distorted octahedral environment of the imine N and hydroxo O with the two axial ligands. The electrochemical reduction of these complexes at a glassy carbon electrode in acetonitrile solution indicates that the first reduction process corresponding to MnIII-MnII is electrochemically quasi-reversible. Thermal stability of these complexes was determined by TG and DTG. Layers of these complexes were formed on nanostructure zinc oxide thin film and a red shift was observed when zinc oxide thin film is modified by complex.
