Some new cadmium (II) and mercury (II) halides complexes of the bidentate Schiff base ligand N,N-bis [(E)-3-(2-nitrophenyl)allylidene)]benzene-1,2-diamine (L) were synthesized, and characterized by physical and spectral study such as elemental analysis, molar conductance, UV–visible spectra, FT-IR spectra, 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectra. All complexes were stable in DMF solvent and the low molar conductivity confirms their stabilization and the non-electrolytic nature of them. The changes in the location and shape of the peaks in UV-visible, FT-IR, and the 1H and 13C NMR spectra of complexes rather than free ligand are the other evidence to form Schiff base complexes. The suggested structure of the complexes is pseudo-tetrahedral. Thermal behaviors of complexes were also investigated.
