Aims: To synthesize a new aromatic dialdehyde using 1equivalant of 2, 4, 5, 6-tetrachloro-1,3-bis(chloromethyl)benzene and 2 equivalant of 3-hydroxybenzaldehyde. The dialdehyde obtain is to be reacted with 2 equivalant of 2-aminophenol to obtain the corresponding di-imine from the dialdehyde. Both the dialdehyde and the di-imine were to be structurally characterized by FT-IR and NMR spectroscopic study. The synthesis is to proceed to the di-imine after the dialdehyde have been structurally studied by FT-IR and NMR and confirm to have been synthesized.
Study Design: Synthesizing new macromolecular ligands using simple available starting materials and determining their chemical structure via FT-IR and NMR spectroscopy.
Place and Duration of Study: Department of Chemistry Fatih University, Istanbul, Turkey. Between January 2013 to May 2014.
Methodology: The synthesis is carried out by convectional heating method using combine heating and magnetic stirring device and a three necked reaction flask and under Argon atmosphere.
Results: Ligands were synthesized, their structures were determined and spectroscopy was carried out, presented and discussed.
Conclusion: Synthesis and structural determination of the new 1,3-bis(3-formylphenoxymethyl)-2,4,5,6-tetrachlorobenzene and 1,3-bis(3-(2-hydroxyphenyliminomethyl)phenoxymethyl)-2,4,5,6-tetrachlorobenzene ligands was successful.
