As part of a program of preparing metal complexes which exhibit unique affinities towards different DNA structures, we have synthesised the novel Schiff base complex N,N'-bis-4-(hydroxysalicylidine)meso-diphenylethylenediaminenickel(ii) (), via the reaction of meso-1,2-diphenylethylenediamine and 2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde. This compound was subsequently reacted with 1-(2-chloroethyl)piperidine or 1-(2-chloropropyl)piperidine, to afford the alkylated complexes...[Show more]
