Abstract: In this study, the various ligands axially coordinated to two cobalt center bound to the N4-oxime core in 12 new dicobaloxime/organodicobaloxime (1–12) complexes have been synthesized and characterized by NMR (1H and 13C), UV–Visible, FT-IR, LC–MS, molar conductivity analysis, melting point, and magnetic susceptibility experiments with elemental analysis. These spectroscopic results indicate that the formation of new dicobaloxime/organodicobaloxime (112) complexes. The (C=N–OH) peaks disappeared in the 1H-NMR spectrum of dicobaloxime/organodicobaloxime (112) complexes, while new peaks were observed at range 20.18–18.33 ppm, indicating that the groups of ligands have been transformed to intramolecular H-bridge (O–H⋯O). The dicobaloxime (16) species give a better cyclic voltammogram as compared to its organodicobaloxime derivatives (712) due to cyclic voltammograms of the organodicobaloximes (712) were poor. This is possibly due to the enhanced σ donation by R groups in the organocobaloximes which are substantially stabilized. The organodicobaloxime (10) showed much better catalytic activity compared to the other cobaoxime complexes.
