Some new tridentate ONN Schiff base complexes of [NiL(PR3)] (where L=Salicylidene2-amino4-nitrobenzene (L(1)), 5-BrSalicylidene2-amino4-nitrobenzene (L(2)), 5-NO2Salicylidene2-amino4-nitrobenzene (L(3)), 5-MeOSalicylidene2-amino4-nitrobenzene (L(4)) and 3-MeOSalicylidene2-amino4-nitrobenzene (L(5)), R=Bu and Ph (with L(1))) were synthesised and characterized by IR, UV-Vis, (1)H NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis. The geometry of [NiL(1)(PPh3)] was determined by X-ray crystallography. It indicated that the complex had a planar structure and four coordinates in the solid state. The thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermoanalysis (DTA) of the synthesized complexes were carried out in the range of 20-600°C, leading to the decomposition of L(1)-L(3) type in three stages and of L(4)-L(5) and [NiL(1)(PPh3)] type in four stages. Thermal decomposition of the complexes was closely the dependent upon the nature of the Schiff base ligands and proceeded via the first order kinetics.
