The template reactions of salicylidene-, 5-bromosalicylidene-, and 3,5-dichlorosalicylidene-S-R-thiosemicarbazone (R: propyl, butyl, pentyl, hexyl, heptyl, octyl, nonyl, dodecyl) with 5-bromo- and 3,5-dichlorosalicylaldehyde in the presence of nickel(II) yielded N-1,N-4-diarylidene-S-alkyl-thiosemicarbazone chelates. The N2O2 type complexes were isolated as stable solid compounds and characterized by elemental analysis, electronic, infrared, H-1 NMR, and mass spectroscopies. The magnetic susceptibility measurements at room temperature (r.t.) indicate the diamagnetic nature of the complexes. The relationship between melting point (mp) values of the nickel(II) template complexes and the chain length of alkyl moiety was clearly shown.
