Abstract

A novel Ba(II) complex, [BaL2Cl2] (1) (L = pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde-2-phenylacetic acid hydrazone), has been synthesized using BaCl2, pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde and 2-phenylacetohydrazide as raw materials. The structure of 1 has been determined by elemental analysis and X-ray single-crystal diffraction technique. X-ray structural analysis showed that the Ba(II) complex (1) crystallizes in monoclinic, space group P21/c with cell parameters: a = 12.464(3) Å, b = 13.531(3) Å, c = 8.8035(18) Å, β = 95.06(3)°. In 1, the Ba(II) atom is eight-coordinated in a distorted doubly-capped octahedral geometry through four N atoms and two O atoms from two different pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde-2-phenylacetic acid hydrazone ligands and two Cl. The complex (1) forms a 3D network structure by the interaction of intermolecular N-H···Cl hydrogen bonds and π···π stacking of neighboring pyridine rings and benzene rings. The optimum conditions for the benzyl alcohol oxidation reaction using the Ba(II) complex as catalyst was investigated. View Full-Text
