Cu(II), Co(II), Mn(II) and Zn(II) form 1∶2 complexes with 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldoxime. All the complexes are non-electrolytes in DMF and nitrobenzene. Square planar structures are assigned for Cu(II), Co(II) and Mn(II) complexes and tetrahedral structure for Zn(II) complex based upon electronic and room temperature magnetic measurements. IR studies reveal that the complexes are formed by the replacement of the hydrogen of the O-H group by the metal with the nitrogen atom of the oxime group coordinating to it.
