A new series of heterocyclic Schiff bases were prepared from condensation of 1-phenyl-3-methyl-4-acetyl/benzoyl-pyrazolone with 4,4′-diaminodiphenylmethane and 4,4′-diaminodiphenyl ether, resulting in the formation of four novel Schiff base ligands. These ligands were then treated with ethanolic solution of PdCl2, to form corresponding palladium(II) complexes. These complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, TGA, magnetic susceptibility measurements and UV-visible absorption spectroscopy. All the Pd(II) complexes were found to have one coordinated water molecule. Schiff base ligands chelated with the metal atom through two donor sites N and O of azomethine (-C=N-) and phenolic (-OH) groups, respectively.
