Synthesis and Crystal Structure of Cadmium(II) Dichloroaquasalicylidenesemicarbazone

Cadmium(II) complex with salicyl aldehyde semicarbozone (Н2L) has been synthesized. Based on elemental analysis and IR spectroscopy its composition – [Cd∙Н2L∙H2O∙Cl2] – has been established. The complex crystal structure has been examined using XRD analysis. The coordination polyhedron of cadmium atom is a distorted octahedron, where two cis-positions are occupied by oxygen atoms of water molecule and carbamide fragment of H2L molecule, other positions are occupied by chlorine atoms.
