Copper(II) and nickel(II) ions were bonded in complexes of salicylideneimine type on a glycidyl methacrylate-ethylenedimethacrylate copolymer. The geometry of the complexes on the polymer was studied by measuring their magnetic properties, EPR spectra, and ultraviolet-visible spectra.Only paramagnetic complexes possessing a pseudo-tetrahedral configuration were found. The effect of the polymer matrix and of the immobility of the bonded Schiff base on the distortion of the coordination sphere of the central ion is discussed.
