    • Abstract


      The alkali metal chelates of salicylaldehyde have been prepared and their infrared spectra obtained. The spectra indicate strong bonding between the metal and hydroxy oxygen and only weak co-ordination of the metal to the carbonyl oxygen. For the lithium complexes two M-O stretching frequencies have been observed at about 590 cm.−1 and 490 cm.−1 The infrared spectra of the complexes have also given indirect evidence towards assignment of the C-OH and aldehydic C-H stretching frequencies.
