Six new macrocyclic complexes were synthesized by the template effect from reaction of 1,4-bis(2-carboxyaldehydephenoxy)butane, Ni(NO3)(2)center dot 6H(2)O or Co(NO3)(2)center dot 6H(2)O and various diamines. The metal-to-ligand ratios of Ni(II) or Co(II) metal complexes were found to be 1 : 1. Coordination of the Schiff base to Ni(II) and Co(II) through the two nitrogen and two oxygen atom (ONNO) are expected to reduce the electron density in the azomethine link and hydroxyl group. The Ni(II) and Co(II) complexes are proposed to be tetrahedral and are 1 : 2 electrolytes as shown by their molar conductivities (Lambda(M)) in DMF (dimethyl formamide) at 10(-3) M. The structures are proposed from elemental analysis, FT-IR, UV-VIS, magnetic susceptibility measurements, molar conductivity measurements, and mass spectra.
