Electron spin resonance and magnetic susceptibility on some copper(II) complexes prepared from phenylazobarbituric and phenylazothiobarbituric acid compounds containing 2,5-dichloro and 2,5-dimethyl groups were discussed. The thio complexes exist in dimer-monomer mixture. The corresponding copper(II) complexes of the oxygen homologous failed to exhibit association. Singlet-triplet separation values equal to -321 and -263 cm(-1) for the 2,5-dimethyl and 2,5-dichloro complexes, respectively, of the thio series. An empirical measure of the amount of tetrahedral deformation based on the values of g||/A|| assigned the square-planar geometry of the dimethyl-oxygen complex while the other complexes are with tetrahedral planar geometries. The effect of temperature on the ESR data was discussed. The diamagnetic properties of the complexes derived from 2,5-dichloro and 2,5-dimethyl thiobarbituric acid suggested the formation of Cu(I) complexes.
