    Abstract: p-Toluic hydrazide was used for synthetizing a new Schiff base N'-(2,3-dihydroxybenzylidene)-4-methylbenzohydrazide (I). The prepared compound was characterized by elemental analysis, infrared and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy techniques, and the structure of compound (I) was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction study. The compound (C15H14N... Show More
