In this study, the title compound, N,N'-bis[(2,4-dimethoxyphenyl)methylidene]butane-1,4-diamine (L), was prepared and characterized by analytical and spectroscopic methods. The analytical data of the Schiff base ligand (L) confirms the proposed structure. The conductance value indicates that the ligand is non-electrolyte. The electrochemical properties of the ligand (L) are dependent on irreversible and quasi-reversible redox waves in the anodic and cathodic regions, due to oxidation and reduction. The single crystal of the ligand (L) was obtained from MeOH solution. Space group and crystal system of the ligand are P2(1)/(C) and monoclinic, respectively. Unit cell dimensions of the ligand are a = 4.0647(2) angstrom, b = 17.4186 (10) angstrom, c = 13.8982(8) angstrom and beta = 94.325 (1)degrees.
