Zn(II) and Cd(II) complexes of a 1+1 condensed Schiff base derived from salicylaldehyde and diaminomaleonitrile has been synthesized and characterized. Electronic and photoluminescence spectral properties of the complexes as well as the free ligand have been investigated and a thorough DFT study has been performed to rationalize the spectral behavior.
