EPR Spectral Studies of Dimeric and Monomeric Cu(II) Complexes of di-2-pyridyl Ketone N(4)-methyl Thiosemicarbazone

Authors(1) :-Renjusha S.

Four copper(II) complexes, [Cu2(DpyMeTsc)2SO4]·3H2O (1), [Cu(DpyMeTsc)N3]·H2O (2), [Cu2(DpyMeTsc)2]·(ClO4)2·2H2O (3), and [Cu(DpyMeTsc)(CH3COO)]·2H2O (4) of di-2-pyridyl ketone N(4)-methylthiosemicarbazone (HDpyMeTsc) are studied with electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. EPR is the most powerful spectroscopic method to discriminate between monomeric and dimeric Cu(II) complexes in solution. EPR studies indicate dimeric nature of (1) and (3) and monomeric nature of (2) and (4).
