    Summary
    A blue luminescent high-spin (s = 5/2) iron(III) complex, [FeIII(HL1)2]Cl (2), was synthesized with the acyclic tridentate salicylaldehyde 2-pyridyl hydrazone ligand, H2L1 (1), and it can subsequently be deprotonated and methylated into blue luminescent iron(III) complexes, [FeIII(L2)2]Cl (3) and [FeIII (MeL1)2]Cl (4) respectively. On excitation at 390 nm, the ligand and the complexes display fluorescence in the blue region (λem = 440–450 nm) of the spectrum. The association constant, (Kass = 4.6421 × 104 at 298 K) and the thermodynamic parameters for complex 2 have been determined by UV–Vis spectroscopy. The iron(III)–iron(II) reduction potentials lie near – 0.2 V versus SCE. The X-ray crystal structure of the complex, [FeIII (HL1)2]Cl • H2O (2), was determined, revealing meridional binding of the two ligands affording a cis-FeN4O2 geometry with alternate chlorine and water molecules at the interface of the main molecule, resulting in interesting interlayer O–HCl bridging.
