    • Abstract

       

      Phenolic compounds play a very important role in human life because of their antioxidant activity which can prevent harmful diseases caused by free radicals. In the present work, we have synthesized some Schiff bases by the reaction of different hydroxybenzaldehydes and primary aromatic diamines using StannousChloride (SnCl2·2H2O) as the catalyst. The products were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, GCMS and NMR spectroscopy. Furthermore, the antioxidant activity of the Schiff bases were determined by using DPPH assay and ABTS assay and the results were compared with a standard compound, trolox as well as with the parent aldehydes. The synthesized compounds were found to have better antioxidant activity than their corresponding parent aldehydes.
