Due to such advantages and, also, for the ease of formation, work has been done on the synthesis of tripodal ligand(s), especially the Schiff base tripodal ligand(s).
Considering the extensive usage of tripodal multidentate chelating systems, we in our present work report the synthesis of a novel multidentate imine-naphthol based tripodal ligand along with spectroscopic details and discussion of keto-enol tautomerism shown by the ligand (Figure 1).
If we examine our ligand structure, it is found that the tripodal ligand(s) in its fully protonated form have seven protons which can be deprotonated by the addition of base.
