The aldimine ligand N-N1-diphenyl-o-pyrol-6-methyleneacetate (PPA) was prepared by a condensation reaction between 2-phenylglycinemethyesterhydrochloride and pyrol-2-carbaldehyde which was used to synthesize transition metal complexes of Cu(II) and Fe(II) employing the microwave assisted technique. The ligand and complexes were characterized by FTIR, UV, XRD, and magnetic susceptibility measurements. Spectral results which had PPA – Cu (46.619 cm-1) and PPA – Fe (43.859 cm-1) revealed complexation arising from the nitrogen of the azomethine group. The UV and magnetic susceptibility confirmed the probable geometries of Cu(II) and Fe(II) complexes to be octahedral with magnetic moments of 1.66 and 1.11 B.M respectively. Crystallographic diffraction pattern revealed the unit cell dimension of a (7.9Å), b(7.4Å), c(7.0Å), α(90o), β(90o), γ(90o) for Fe and a(4.3 Å), b(3.8Å), c(4.46Å), α(90o), β(90o), γ(90o) for Cu(II) aligning with orthorhombic crystal system. Molar conductance measurement of 717 and 229 Ω-1cm-2mol-1 PPA – Cu and PPA – Fe respectively indicated that the complexes are electrolytic in nature. The metal complexes showed higher inhibiting potential compared to the free ligand when tested against the root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita present in the crop Esculentum spp implying that the complexes can be used as nematicides.
