    • Abstract


      A new series of dioxouranium(VI) complexes of a potential ONNO tetradentate donor 2-aminobenzoylhydrazone of butane-2,3-dione (L1H2) have been synthesized. At pH 2·5–4·0, the donor (L1H2) reacts in the keto form and complexes of the type [UO2(L1H2)(X)2] (X=Cl, Br, NO3, NCS, ClO4, CH3COO, 1/2SO42−) are obtained. At higher pH (6·5–7), the complex of the enol form having the formula [UO2(L1)(H2O)] has been isolated. On reaction with a monodentate lewis base (B), both types of complexes yield adducts of the type [UO2(L1)(B)]. All these complexes have been characterised adequately by elemental analyses and other standard physicochemical techniques. Location of the bonding sites of the donor molecule around the uranyl ion, status of the uranium-oxygen bond and the probable structure of the complexes have also been discussed.
