A novel vic-dioxime, 1,2 dihydroxyimino-1-p-tolyl-3-aza-6-morpholine heptane (LH2) was prepared by reacting anti-p-tolylchloroglyoxime with 4-(3-aminopropyl) morpholine in absolute THF. Mononuclear complexes with a metal-ligand ratio of 1:2 were prepared using Co-II, Cu-II and Ni-II salts. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, FT-IR, u.v.-vis., H-1- and C-13-n.m.r. spectra, magnetic susceptibility measurements, thermogravimetric analyses (t.g.a.), and by cyclic voltammetry.
