The complex of Al(111) with paracetamol have synthesized and characterized using UV–Vis, Infrared spectroscopies and melting point. The ligand has been found to behave as tridentate chelating agents. Paracetamol complex coordinate through the carboxylate oxygen, phenolate oxygen atom, and amine group. The complex solubility was evaluated for several solvents and it was found the compound was more soluble in DMSO. Job’s method of continuous variation suggested 1 : 2 metals to ligand stoichiometry for paracetamol complex.
