It is well known that β-diketones are also formed through Baker-Venkataraman transformation. In the present case, 3-bromo-2-methylbenzoic acid reacts with ortho-hydroxyacetophenone at room temperature to yield ester. Ester on further Baker-Venkataraman transformation yields 1,3-diketone (L) i.e. 1-(3-bromo-2-methylphenyl)-3-hydroxy-3-(2-hydroxyphenyl)prop-2-en-1-one. Five complexes of Mn(II), Fe(III), Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) with bidentate ligand (L), have been synthesized from reaction ofdoi:10.14233/ajchem.2017.20667 fatcat:6vsmqjzsd5hffbmgkr2qnytj5u
