Synthesis of 4-{(E)-[(3-methyl-5-sulphanyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-4-yl)imino]methyl} benzaldehyde and its complexes with Ag(I), Hg(II), Zn(II), Co(II), Ni(II) ions and its characterisation

A novel Schiff base 4-{(E)-[(3-methyl-5-sulphanyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-4-yl)imino]methyl}benzaldehyde (MSTB) and its complexes with Ag(I), Hg(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Co(II) have been prepared. MSTB is prepared by the condensation reaction between triazole and terephthaldehyde. In complexes, MSTB molecules are found to link with the metal ion, through thiolsulphur after deprotonation and the nitrogen of the azomethine group. The composition of the complexes are found to be ML where M =Ag, ML2 where M=Zn, Hg and ML2(H2O)2 where M= Co, Ni. Linear polymeric structure is proposed for Ag(I) complex, tetrahedral structure is proposed for Zn(II) and Hg(II) complexes and octahedral structure is proposed for Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes.
