Abstract: The title complex, [Co(II)(C7H10N2)2Cl2], has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, UV-vis spectra and X-ray single crystal diffraction. It crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group P2/c, with lattice parameters a = 8.1370(16) Aring, b = 6.4990(13) Aring, c = 16.416(5) Aring, β = 98.99(3)° and Z = 2. The crystal structure of the title compound consists of monomeric molecules of [Co(II)(C7H10N2)2Cl2] with C2 symmetry and the two-fold axis through the Co(II) ion and the mid-point of two Cl- anions. TG/DTG data indicate that thermal decomposition of the compound takes place in two steps and the residue is Co. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations of the structure, electronic spectra, natural population analysis and the thermodynamic properties at different temperatures have been performed. The calculated results show that electronic transitions are mainly derived from the contribution of an intraligand (IL) π → π* transition, metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) and d-d transition. Bond strength of Co-Cl is stronger than that of Co-N, which agrees with the experimental data. The correlation equations of the thermodynamic properties of C0p,m and Sm0 with temperature are also obtained.
