Several new complexes of Schiff bases obtained by the condensation of 1,2-bis(p-aminophenoxy)ethane and 1,2-bis(in-aminophenoxy)ethane with 3,5-di-tert-butyl-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde have been synthesized, and characterized by elemental analyses, FT-IR, UV-VIS, H-1 NMR spectroscopy, magnetic susceptibility measurements and cyclic voltammetry. The metal to ligand ratios of the Co(II) and Cu(II) complexes were found to be 1:1. The coordination of the Schiff base appears to occur through the two azomethine nitrogens and two o-OH groups. Electrochemical data suggest the existence of copper(II)/copper(I) and cobalt(II)/cobalt(I) redox couples in DMSO along with an irreversible oxidation peak assigned to the oxidation of ligands for all of the complexes.
