Inclusion of 1,2-Diaminocyclohexane in the Formation of a Series of Multi-Dentate Ligands, and Selected Metal Complexes Thereof

Vella, Sarah, and Mark Benvenuto

A series of tetra-dentate ligands, all incorporating 1,2-diaminocyclohexane, and two equivalents of a functional aldehyde, were generated through Schiff's base condensations. Synthesis and characterizations of the ligands by NMR, and of several metal complexes of them, will be presented and discussed.
