Pyruvaldehyde mixed bis(thiosemicarbazones) have been prepared in which the two thiosemicarbazone moieties have different N(4)-substituents. The mixed bis(thiosemicarbazones) and their copper(II) and nickel(II) complexes have been characterized with IR, electronic, mass, 1H NMR (Ni) and EPR (Cu) spectra. Representative crystal structures have been solved of nickel(II) complexes with either a pyruvaldehyde mixed bis(thiosemicarbazone) or a bis(thiosemicarbazone) with identical N(4)-substituents acting as a tetradentate ligand. [Ni(Pu4M4DE)] has an N(4)-methylthiosemicarbazone substituent on the keto "arm" and N(4)-diethylthiosemicarbazone substituent on the aldehyde arm. [Ni(Pu4M)] contains two N(4)-methylthiosemicarbazone moieties. Both bis(thiosemicarbazones) form square-planar N2S2 complexes with nickel(II) and copper(II).
