A new pendant armed Schiff base macrocyclic complex of [CdL]2+, was prepared via cyclocondensation of 2,6-bis(2-formylphenoxymethyl)pyridine with branched hexaamine in the presence of Cd(II) ion. The ligand was 23-membered oxaazamacrocycle having two 2-aminoethyl pendant arms [L: 3,28-dioxa-14,17-bis(aminoethyl)-11,14,17,20,34-pentaazatetracyclo[34.3.1] tetratriacontane-1(34), 4, 6, 8, 10, 20, 22, 24, 26, 30, 32-undecaene]. The complex was investigated by IR, 1H NMR, microanalysis and MALDI mass spectroscopy. The structure of the complex was verified by ab initio HF-MO calculations using a standard 3-21G* basis set. This article introduces an unusual seven-membered chelate ring and shows that by its using, the Cd-N bonds lengths within the macrocycle would be longer and also Cd(II)-pendant amine bonds lengths would be shorter.
