Synthesis of a Series of Multi-Dentate Podand Ligands and Initial Complexation Trials With Transition Metals Cations

Payne, Jenna, Jennifer Roehl, and Mark Benvenuto

Multi-dentate ligands utilizing straight-chain podand amines and ortho-functionalized aldehydes were synthesized and in selected cases reacted with metal cations.  The ligands were characterized by 1H NMR.  The syntheses, characterizations, and potential uses of each will be presented.
