Abstract


Complexes of anionic pentadentate macrocyclic ligands by the template condensation of bis(hydrazino)2,2'-bipyridine or 1,10-phenanthroline with an indoledialdehyde have been synthesized. The new Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) macrocyclic complexes have been characterized by analytical and spectroscopic techniques and by conductivity and magnetic susceptibility measurements.
