Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II) Mixed Ligand Complexes of Theophylline and Cyanate: Synthesis and Spectroscopic Characterization

  •  Shayma Shaker    


New mixed ligand complexes were synthesized between theophylline and cyanate to give complexes with general formula [M(Tp)4Y2] where Tp= theophylline, Y= cyanate ion and M=Co(II), Ni(II),Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II). The resulting products were found to be crystallined which have been characterized using UV-Visible spectroscopic properties and Infrared spectra. Elemental analyses were performed using (C, H, N) and atomic absorption technique. The magnetic susceptibility and the conductivity for the complexes were also measured. The present results suggested the octahedral configuration for the metal complexes.
