    • Abstract


      Reaction of pyrrole-2-aldehyde thiosemicarbazone (abbreviated as H2L, where H2 stands for the two potentially dissociable protons) with [Pd(PPh3)2Cl2] in ethanol in the presence of NEt3 afforded two complexes, [Pd(PPh3)(HLNS)Cl] and [Pd(PPh3)(LNNS)], where the thiosemicarbazone ligand is coordinated to the metal centre respectively as monoanionic N,S-donor (depicted by HLNS) and dianionic N,N,S-donor (depicted by LNNS). Similar reaction with Na2[PdCl4] afforded a bis-complex, [Pd(HLNS)2]. Crystal structures of all the three complexes have been determined.With reference to the structure of the uncoordinated thiosemicarbazone (H2L), the N,S-coordinationmode observed in [Pd(PPh3)(HLNS)Cl] and [Pd(HLNS)2] is associated with a geometrical change around the imine bond.While the N,N,S-mode of binding observed in [Pd(PPh3)(LNNS)] takes place without any such geometrical change. All three complexes display intense absorptions in the visible and ultraviolet regions, which have been analyzed by TDDFT method.
