Original Paper


The nano-silicon tetrachloride was prepared by an effective and environmentally friendly ball milling technique. The protonation constants of 2-oxo-N-(pyridine-2-yl)-2-(2-(1-(pyridin-2-yl)ethylidene)hydrazinyl)acetamide (H2L) and the stability constants of its nano silicon complexes were estimated by the potentiometric technique at different temperatures 298, 308 & 318°K.
