The reaction of aminomethylated polystyrene (PSCH2-NH2) and 2-hydroxyacetanilide in DMF results in the formation of polystyrene-anchored monobasic bidentate Schiff base, PSCH2-LH (I). On the other hand, the reaction of chloromethylated polystyrene (PSCH2-Cl), 3-formylsalicylic acid, ethylenediamine and acetylacetone in DMF in presence of ethyl acetate (EA) and triethylamine (TEA) produces another polystyrene-anchored dibasic tetradentate Schiff base, PSCH2-L′H2 (II). BothI andII react with a number of di-, tri-and hexavalent metal ions like Co, Ni, Cu, Zn and Cd to form polystyreneanchored coordination compounds, and these have been characterized and discussed.
