Abstract

It is observed that for a square planar Ni(II)-Schiff base complex of the general formula {Ni(II)L}, where L is {L: N,N'-bis(5-hydroxy-salicylidene)ethylenediamine}, when encapsulated in a supercage of zeolite Y the bulky guest complex adopts a non-planar geometry without disturbing the integrity of the zeolite framework. Detailed comparative characterization is carried out to understand the structural change of the guest complex as a result of steric and electronic interactions with the host framework. UV-Vis spectroscopic studies of the encapsulated and 'neat' complex show a significant blue shift in the d-d transition after encapsulation and the diamagnetic 'neat' complex exhibits paramagnetism after encapsulation. DFT studies of the Ni(II)-Schiff base complex have been carried out for different spin states in neat and encapsulated form and the UV-Vis spectra are simulated using TD-DFT to understand the observed spectra in detail.
