Dinuclear copper(II) complexes (Cu2 LnCl3), nickel(II) complexes (Ni2 LnCl3) and cobalt(II) complexes (Co2L2nCl2) from Schiff base ligands are synthesised, characterised and used as catalysts for oxidation of 3,5-DTBC to 3,5-DTBQ. (Cu2LnCl3) are found to be more efficient than the other complexes. Dinuclear iron(III) complexes of composition (Fe2L2Cl2) and ruthenium (III) complexes of composition Ru2L2nCl6(PPh3)2 and Ru2L2nCl2(PPh3)2 catalyse epoxidation of styrene and cyclohexene. Catalytic activities of ruthenium(III) complexes are much greater than those of analogous iron(III) complexes.

An efficient asymmetric synthetic route for the synthesis of anti-glaucoma agent, (15R)-latanoprost using Corey lactone diol as chiral substrate under Swern oxidation, allylic reduction and Wittig reaction conditions has been developed. In this method, reduction of keto and alkene functional groups has been achieved in a single step using low cost catalyst NiCl2/NaBH4 in methanol. This new synthetic protocol is a good alternative for the synthesis of latanoprost with high stereo selectivity and improved yield.
