Spectroscopy of Bioactive Manganese(II) and Copper(II) Complexes with Mannich Bases

The compositions and geometries of coordination polyhedra in Cu(II) and Mn(II) complexes with Mannich bases were determined using IR, EPR, and electron spectroscopy. It was shown that bidentate ligands were coordinated to the metal ions in these complexes. The coordination polyhedra of mononuclear Cu(II) and Mn(II) complexes consisted of two mono-anionic ligands. Polyhedra of the Mn(II) complexes also contained two water molecules. The Cu(II) complexes had characteristic square-planar [CuN2O2] coordination polyhedra; Mn(II) complexes, [MnN2O4] octahedra.
