The Schiff base reaction played an important role of the condensation reaction between 2-aminophenol and Glyoxylic acid in the presence of calculated amounts of KOH as a catalyst. The reaction has been carried out in ethanol under reflux and stirring condition for 3.5 hrs. All syntheses were carried out under hydrogen gas forming a new potassium (E)-1-hydroxy-2-(2-hydroxyphenylimino)ethanolate ligand type [NO2]. The ligand of the general formula K2[Mn(L2)] type and its Mnп complex K2[Mn(N2O4)] type, has been characterized by spectroscopic methods (F.T-I.R. and U.V-Vis.), elemental analysis (C.H.N) metal content, magnetic susceptibility measurement, Thin-layer chromatography (T.L.C), X-RD powder diffraction, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR molar conductance and Biological activity (The ligand and its Mnп complex were exposed to two types of bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis), using the agar disc diffusion method, and the ligand and its Mnп complex exhibited significant activities against these two types of bacteria). The X-RD of the Mnп ion complex revealed that the complexes are 100 % crystalline. The F.T-I.R. measurements, U.V-Vis. and mass spectrum for the ligand and its complex reveal the exact peak for each of the compounds functional groups.
The study revealed the formation of a new ligand type [NO2] with study the formation of new crystal complex and six-coordinate octahedral structure around Mnп metal ion in the ratio of 1:2 (metal:ligand) stable compounds which can be used in many fields (medicine & industry ).
