Synthesis of a series of ligands, all incorporating 1,2-diaminocyclohexane, and selected metal complexes thereof

Vella, Sarah, and Mark Benvenuto

A series of multi-dentate ligands, all incorporating 1,2-diaminocyclohexane, and produced using two equivalents of a functional aldehyde, were generated through Schiff’s base condensations.  Synthesis and characterizations of the ligands, and of selected metal complexes of them, will be presented and discussed.
