Salicylaldehyde Salicyloylhydrazone belongs to the family known as Schiff bases and impart as bidentate ligand with transition metals to synthesize organometallic compounds. Its metal complexes are useful against bacteria and fungi cause diseases like infection, illness, hearing problem or hearing loss and cancer.

Key words: Salicylaldehyde Salicyloylhydrazone, Schiff Bases, 2-hydroxy-N'-[(E)-(2-hydroxyphenyl)methylidene]benzohydrazide, Organometallic.


Schiff bases represent one of the most widely used families of organic compounds and their chemistry is essential material in many organic chemistry textbooks [1-3]. In general, this class of compounds can be easily prepared by the condensation reaction of primary amines with carbonyl compounds. The first report of this kind of reaction has been published by Hugo Schiff in the 1860s [4-6]. Thereafter Schiff bases have been intensively used as synthetic intermediates and as ligands for coordinating transition and inner transition metal ions, and recently also for coordinating anions [7-9]. During the past two decades they have become some of the most typical ligands in the field of coordination chemistry [10-16].

These ligands may act as bidentate through N,O-, tridentate N,O,O-, N,O,N-, N,O,S-, tetradentate N,N,O,O-, and hexadentate N,N,O,O,S,S-donor ligands [17-23], which can be designed to yield mononuclear or binuclear complexes or one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) metal-organic frameworks [24-31]. The synthesis and structural research of Schiff bases derived from the above mentioned aldehydes and amines bearing various alkyl and aryl N-substituents, as well as their metal complexes have been of interest of researchers for over two decades [32-43]. Schiff base ligands may contain a variety of substituents with different electron-donating or electron-withdrawing groups, and therefore may have interesting chemical properties. They have attracted particular interest due to their biological activities [44,45] for example acting as radiopharmaceuticals for cancer targeting [46,47]. They have also been used as model systems for biological macromolecules [48,49].

Other applications extent its use in catalysis [50,51], dying processes [52,53] and analytical applications [54] . In this review we attempted to summarize the salicylaldehyde salicyloylhydrazone-metal complexes that have been published to the date.

For the review, we have endeavored to include Group III-A, Alkaline earth metal, 3d Transition metals and Group III-B metal complexes with salicylaldehyde salicyloylhydrazone, we have also mentioned that what type of characterization was done.


The kinetics of the polarographic reduction of 1 in universal buffer containing 40% EtOH was reported by Temerk and coworkers [55]. They demonstrated the mechanism involves in formation of RMe and salicylic acid hydrazide at pH (less than) 5.8 in a single wave 4 electron reduction. They also discussed the substituent effect on rate of electron transfer in the reduction of compound 1 [55].

A mass spectrum of salicylaldehyde salicyloylhydrazide (at an ionizing energy of 70 eV) was first recorded by Bhasin and coworkers in 1973. They reported the relative intensities of the fragments from the compound and further discussed those in relation to fragmentation modes [56].

Another group worked on the rate of hydrolysis of 2 in 40% (vol./vol.) EtOH-Buffer mixture by differential pulse polarogram. They reported that hydrolysis was catalyzed by H+ and rate follows strictly first-order kinetics. The rate constant decreased with increasing pH up to around pH 3.9, beyond which no measurable reaction was observed and at that point the protonation of imine begins to be significantly incomplete. The attack of H2O on the protonated substrate was the rate-determining step while the effects of pH, molecular structure and temperature on the reaction rate as well as the activation energy were reported. Thermodynamic parameters ( (delta) G, (delta) H and (delta) S) for the hydrolysis were also discussed [57].

Polarographic reduction was investigated by Issa and coworkers. They reported that the reduction involved a 4- electron process in acidic buffers and a 2-electron process in alkaline buffers. They further reported that Hammett plot of half-wave potential had a negative slope while also detected the Kinetic parameters of the electrode process [58].

Solid state photochronic properties were examined in detail by Rawat and coworkers. They prepared the title compound 3 and 4. They reported that 3 was photochromic in sunlight (5 min) and was thermally reversed in the dark (1 wk at 25oC) while 4 was not photochromic [59].
