Synthesis and Luminescent Properties of Magnesium Complex with Schiff-Base Ligands
Two new Schiff-base ligands and their magnesium complexes were prepared by the reaction of magnesium ion with 2-acetyl-1-naphthol-1,2-diaminopropane (complex 1) and 2-acetyl-1-naphthol-N,N-bis(3-aminopropyl)methylamine (complex 2) in ethanol solution, respectively. The luminescent properties of two novel magnesium complexes were studied in solid and in ethanol, methanol and DMSO solutions. The results show that both complex 1 and complex 2 have strong blue luminescence. The organic solvent could influence the luminescence of complex (1) and a complex (2).
