Oxovanadium(IV) complexes having the general formula [VO(L)] were designed and synthesized using vanadyl ion as kinetic template with ligands derived by condensation of \beta-diketones such as acetylacetone, benzoylacetone, thenoyltrifluoroacetone, and dibenzoylmethane with 2-amino-3-hydroxypyridine or 2-aminobenzoic acid or 2-aminonicotinic acid. Tentative structures of the complexes were proposed on the basis of elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic moments, and spectral (infrared, electronic and electron spin resonance) data. All the oxovanadium(IV) complexes are 5-coordinated wherein derived ligands act as tetradentate chelating agents.
