The 2-furan-2-yl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinazoline-2-carbaldehyde oxime (HL) and complex of tridentate ligand containing oxime, imine, and amine donors resulting from reactions with cobalt(II) salt have been synthesized and characterized by spectral methods (FT-IR, NMR, UV-Vis, mass), elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, molar conductivity, and thermal analysis (TG, DTA) techniques. The molecular structure of HL was elucidated from single-crystal X-ray diffraction. X-ray crystallographic analysis shows that the molecule crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group C2/c. In the complex, chloride was not coordinated as confirmed by conductivity measurements. The metal is coordinated to the oxime, imine, and amine nitrogen atoms and decomposes with loss of the organic ligand and halogen to leave metal oxide. The metal to ligand ratio was 1 : 2 by elemental analysis and mass spectrum.
