Title: Spectroscopic characterization of some Cu(II) complexes

3-hydroxy-4-methoxy benzaldehyde semicarbazone (HMBS) is a biologically active compound which has several potential donor sites. This compound has been used for complexation with Cu(II) ions to synthesize complexes of general formula [Cu(HMBS){sub 2}X{sub 2}] where X is Cl{sup −}, NO{sub 3}{sup −} and CH{sub 3}COO{sup −}. Cu(II) is a d{sup 9} system for which {sup 2}D term is generated. Under O{sub h} symmetry, this term splits into {sup 2}E{sub g} and {sup 2}T{sub 2g}. the ground term {sup 2}Eg is doubly degenerate and hence suffers strong Jahn-Teller effect and accordingly the further splitting of terms occur to lower the symmetry from perfect O{sub h}. Here, the ligand occupies four planar positions while the two axial positions have been varied by using different ions like Cl{sup −}, NO{sub 3}{sup −} and CH{sub 3}COO{sup −}. These variations on the axial positions also add to the distortion in O{sub h} symmetry. Under strong distortion, the electronic spectral band splits into multiplets exhibiting tetragonal distortion in complexes. The extent of distortion has been derived by the derivation of the two radial parameters D{sub s} and D{sub t} from electronic spectral bands. The ESR spectra of complexes reveal the real position of the only unpairedmore » electron of the d{sup 9} system in complexes.« less
