Abstract: 

Four new Schiff bases have been derived from the condensation of acenapthoquinone and naphthylamines in 1:2 molar ratios. These Schiff base ligands were used to synthesise novel mononuclear Ni(II) complexes with square planar geometry. The ligands and the complexes have been investigated by elemental analyses, spectroscopic methods (FT-IR and UV-Vis.,), molar conductance and magnetic susceptibility studies. The electrochemical properties of Ni(II) complexes have been studied by cyclic voltammetry technique. The catalytic efficacy of the complexes has been analysed in the oxidation of toluene to benzyl alcohol, using H2O2. Biological activities of these ligands and complexes were checked against selected bacterial strains (E. coli and S. Aureus).

Keywords: 

Schiff base, FT-IR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, toluene, chelation
