A number of complexes of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Ru(II), Pd(II) and Pt(II) with 2-methyl-3-(carboxy methyl) quinazolin (3H)-4-one (MCMQ) and 2-phenyl-3-(carboxy methyl) quinazolin (3H)-4-one (PCMQ) have been synthesized and characterized by analytical, conductivity, thermal, magnetic, infrared, electronic, proton magnetic resonance and electron spin resonance spectral data. Based on analytical data, the stoichiometry and the association with other molecules of the complexes have been determined. Conductivity data show that all these complexes are nonelectrolytes. Infrared and PMR spectral data indicate that both the ligands are uninegative bidentate with all the metal ions. Based on electronic spectral data, the geometries of the complexes have been indicated. Electronic spectral parameters for Co(II) and Ni(II) and ESR parameters for Cu(II) complexes have been calculated and relevant conclusions have been drawn with respect to the nature of bonds present in them.
