Three novel vic-dioxime ligands containing the 1,8-diamino-3,6-dioxaoctane group, N, N'-(1,8-diamino-3,6-dioxaoctane)-p- tolylglyoxime ((LSLH4)-S-1-H-1), N, N0-(1,8-diamino3,6-dioxaoctane)- phenylglyoxime ((LSLH4)-S-2-H-2), and N, N'-(1,8-diamino-3,6-dioxaoctane)-glyoxime ((LSLH4)-S-3-H-3) have been prepared from 1,8-diamino-3,6-dioxaoctane with anti-p-tolylchloroglyoxime, anti-phenylchloroglyoxime or anti-monochloroglyoxime. Polynuclear complexes [M((LSLx)-S-x)](n) or [M((LSLx)-S-x)(H2O)](n) (x = 1, 2 and 3), where M = Cu-II, Co-II, and Ni-II, have been obtained with 1: 1 metal/ ligand ratio. The Cu-II and Ni-II poly-metal complexes of these ligands are proposed to be square planar, while also the prepared CoII complexes are proposed to be octahedral with two water molecules as axial ligands. The detection of H-bonding in the [Ni((LSL1)-S-1)](n), [Ni((LSL2)-S-2)](n) and [M((LSL3)-S-3)(H2O)] n metal complexes by FT i. r. spectra revealed the square planar or octahedral [MN4 center dot H2O)](n) coordination of poly-nuclear metal complexes. [MN4] n coordination of the [Ni((LSL1)-S-1)](n) and [Ni((LSL2)-S-2)](n) complexes were also determined by H-1-n.m.r. spectroscopy. The ligands and poly-metal complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, FT-i. r., u. v.-vis., H-1 and C-13-n. m. r. spectra, magnetic susceptibility measurements, molar conductivity, cyclic voltammetry, and differential pulse voltammetric (DPV) techniques.
