A series of novel [Fe(MeiPrGlyoxH)2(amine)2] complexes have been synthesized [(MeiPrGlyoxH2 = methylisopropylglyoxime, amine = 3,5-dimethylpyridine, 4-(dimethylamino)pyridine, 4-(phenylamino)phenol, 2-imidazolidone)] and characterized by 57Fe Mössbauer, FTIR, UV–Vis spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, AFM and thermoanalytical methods. Quantum chemical (DFT) computations of [Fe(MeiPrGlyoxH)2(3,5-dimethyl-Py)2] (Py = pyridine) complex were also performed. The square-planar structure of [Fe(MeiPrGlyoxH)2] moiety is similar to that of [Fe(MeEtGlyoxH)2]. The incorporation of branching alkyl chains (isopropyl) in the complexes alters the Fe–N bond length and results in high-spin iron(II) state.
