      Complexes of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II) with 3-(2-pyridyl)-1-(2-hydroxy phenyl)-2-propen-1-one (PHPO), 3-(1-naphthyl)-1-(2-hydroxy phenyl)-2-propen-1-one (NHPO) and 3-(3,4-dimethoxy phenyl)-1-(2-hydroxy phenyl)-2-propen-1-one (DMPHPO) have been synthesized and characterized by analytical, conductivity, thermal, magnetic, infrared, electronic and electron spin resonance data. Based on analytical data the stoichiometry of the complexes has been found to be 1 : 2. The conductivity data show that all these complexes are non-electrolytes. The infrared spectral data indicate that the ligand PHPO acts as uninegative tridentately towards Co(II) and Ni(II) and bidentately with Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II). Ligands like NHPO and DMPHPO act as uninegative bidentately with all the metal ions. The electronic spectral data suggest that all the Co(II) complexes and Ni(II) of PHPO complex are octahedral and all the Cu(II) and Ni(II) of NHPO and DMPHPO complex are square-planar. The complex of Zn(II) and Cd(II) are tetrahedral. ESR parameters of Cu(II) complexes have been calculated and relevant conclusions have been drawn with respect to the nature of bonds present in them.

      A number of complexes of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Ru(II), Pd(II) and Pt(II) with 2-methyl-3-(carboxy methyl) quinazolin (3H)-4-one (MCMQ) and 2-phenyl-3-(carboxy methyl) quinazolin (3H)-4-one (PCMQ) have been synthesized and characterized by analytical, conductivity, thermal, magnetic, infrared, electronic, proton magnetic resonance and electron spin resonance spectral data. Based on analytical data, the stoichiometry and the association with other molecules of the complexes have been determined. Conductivity data show that all these complexes are nonelectrolytes. Infrared and PMR spectral data indicate that both the ligands are uninegative bidentate with all the metal ions. Based on electronic spectral data, the geometries of the complexes have been indicated. Electronic spectral parameters for Co(II) and Ni(II) and ESR parameters for Cu(II) complexes have been calculated and relevant conclusions have been drawn with respect to the nature of bonds present in them.

      A series of complexes of Co(II) and Ni(II) with 2-(R)-3-(X)-substituted quinazoline-(3H)-4-ones, where R = methyl/phenyl and X = furalamino, uramino and thiouramino have been synthesised and characterised by analytical, conductivity, thermal and magnetic, infrared and electronic spectral data. Based on analytical and conductivity studies the stoichiometries of the complexes have been established. Conductivity data also show that all these complexes are non-electrolytes. Infrared spectral data indicate that all the ligands manifest neutral bidentate with both the metal ions. Geometries for the complexes have been proposed based on electronic spectral data. Various electronic spectral parameters have been calculated for all the complexes and relevant conclusions have been drawn with respect to the nature of bonds present in them.
