The reaction of N,N '-bis(ferrocenylmethylene)ethylenediamine (FcNN) Schiff base with metal salts gave SnCl(4)FcNN (1), SnCl(2)FcNN(H2O)(2) (2), Sn-2(CH3)(4)Cl(4)FcNN (3), Ti(2)Cl(8)FcNN (4), CdFcNN(NO3)(2) (5), and CuFcNN(NO3)(2) (6). New complexes (1)-(6) were characterized by IR and elemental analysis techniques. IR spectra showed that the Schiff base was coordinated to the metal ions in a bidentate manner with N,N' donor sites. The H-1 NMR spectra of complexes (1), (2), and (4) show all the expected signals with a typical signal pattern of disubstituted ferrocenyl groups. The electrochemical properties of complexes were determined by cyclic voltammetry. Cyclic voltammetry results show that these complexes exhibit one irreversible oxidation peak.
