Copper (II) zinc (II) cobalt (III) complexes with the Schiff base derived from salicylaldehyde andd-glucosamine were synthesized. These compounds abbreviated as SG, CuSG, ZnSG, CoSG were characterized by elemental analyses, IR, UV-Vis,1H NMR and MS spectrum. ESR spectrum, magnetic susceptibility measured by Evans method for CuSG had also been done. It is suggested that the complexes in solution have pseudotetrahedral structure. It was found that SG would occur a photochemical reaction if a beach of 355 nm ultravisible light shone on its aqueous solution. The reaction was in further research.
