Over the recent past, organometallic chemistry has grown and the impact of catalytic applications in various chemical technologies has rapidly evolved from the realm of academic laboratories into full-scale industrial processes. Pyrrole-imine ligands were prepared by condensation of pyrrole-2-carboxylaldehyde with propyl amine, 2,6-diisopropylanaline, poly(propylene) imine dendrimer and 3-aminopropyl-triethoxysilane to give the desired ligands in good yields. These ligands were charaterized via combination of techniques to establish the molecular structure. Microanalysis was performed to confirm the purity of the product.
