In the study of the effects of asymmetric groups in metal
complexes, by far the most commonly used ligand has been propylenediamine.
This base is a bidentate ligand and its metal complexes
show a close chemical resemblance to those of ethylenediamine, so
that any complex of ethylenediamine can be paralleled using propylenediamine.
X-ray and infra-red studies show that the metal ligand ring in both ethylenediamine and propylenediamine complexes assumes a non-planar configuration. The...[Show more]
