Infrared spectral features to distinguish the different modes of hexamethylenetetramine in metal complexes have been presented. The tentative mode of metalhexamethylenetetramme bonding has been arrived at from the pattern of the twopcn bands at 1225 and 1000 cm−1. It is shown that in complexes with terminal monodentate, bidentate and tetradentate the bands show differing behaviour. Except for the splitting ofvcn bands the IR spectra are superimposable on that of the uncoordinated molecule supporting the theory that chair configuration of the uncoordinated hexamethylenetetramine is retained in all the complexes.
