Synthesis of a new series of N,N'-dimethyltetrahydrosalen (H2[H2Me]salen) ligands by the reductive ring-opening of 3,3'-ethylene-bis(3,4-dihydro-6-substituted-2H-1,3-benzoxazines).


A new series of N,N'-bis(2'-hydroxy-5'-substituted-benzyl)-N,N -dimethylethane-1,2-diamines (N,N'-dimethyltetrahydrosalen) ligands were prepared in good yield by reduction of the respective 3,3'-ethylene-bis(3,4-dihydro-6-substituted-2H-1,3-benzoxazine) precursors with sodium borohydride . The ligands were characterized by IR, NMR, and elemental analysis… (More)
