The reaction of tetradentate hydrazone ligand H2babh with Cu(CH3COO)2 in methanol solvent leads to the formation of the mono-nuclear complex [Cu(babh)]. However, on being dissolved in dichloromethane solvent and on addition of ethanol solvent, a dinuclear complex of [Cu2(μ1,3-babh)2(C2H5OH)2] is obtained. The X-ray crystallography indicates that the dinuclear helical complex formation is caused due to the unsymmetrical twisting of the H2babh ligand. One oxygen and two nitrogen atoms from the ligand and one oxygen atom from the other ligand coordinate to each copper(II) center...

The main objective of this research is to study the adsorption behaviour of malachite green and methylene blue dyes onto the surfactant modified natural clays. The results of SEM, XRD, IR, and thermal analysis confirms the intercalation of organic moiety in to the clay. The adsorption results show that pseudo-first order kinetics best fitted for both the dyes adsorbed on organo-clay. The data also reveals that both dyes are in a good agreement with Langmuir isotherm in both types of modified clays. The value of separation factor, RL, from Langmuir equation and Freundlich constant, n, give an indication of favourable adsorption...
