Attempts to spectroscopic and structural study of copper complexes, some Cu(II) Schiff base complexes were synthesized and characterized by means of electronic, IR, (1)HNMR spectra and elemental analysis. The thermal analyses of the complexes were investigated and the first order kinetic parameters were derived for them. The cyclic voltammetric studies in acetonitrile were proposed a monomeric structure for complexes. The structures of compounds were determined by ab initio calculations. In the solid state, the ligands exist as keto-amine/enol-imine tautomeric forms with an intramolecular hydrogen bond (N-H···O) between amine and carbonyl group. The kinetic studies of the tautomerism and equilibrium constant of the reactions were calculated using transition state theory. The optimized molecular geometry and atomic charges were calculated using MP2 method with 6-31G(d) basis set for H, C, N and O atoms and LANL2DZ for the Cu atom. The results suggested that, in the complexes, Cu(II) ion is in pseudo square-planar NO(3) coordination geometry. Also the bond lengths and angles were studied and compared.
