Blog Challenge 1
My project this year is to create ligands. Later, the four ligands will be used as a base to create a complex, which is a ligand with a metal bound to the center of the molecule. The four ligands will be made from the precursors of Tris-(2-aminoethyl) amine in each and benzaldehyde in one, 4-chloro benzaldehyde in another, 4-methyl benzaldehyde in a third, and 4 (triflouromethyl) benzaldehyde in a fourth. These percursours will be made into ligands and each will bound to copper I and copper II. NMRs and IVs will be taken of each complex and they will be determined what the complex will be called and what it can be used for.
