Two nitrate salts of the well-known, and due to its significant biological activity very important, compound pyridoxylidene aminoguanidine (PLAG) were obtained in the form of single crystals. Thus this ligand is structurally characterized for the first time. In addition, the first data on the structure of a Schiff base of aminoguanidine with the active form of vitamin B6, i.e. pyridoxal-phosphate, of the formula PLPAG·HCl·2H2O, are presented. Two new square-pyramidal Cu(II) complexes of PLAG were synthesized and their physicochemical and structural properties analyzed. In these complexes, PLAG is coordinated as a zwitter-ion, in a tridentate ONN manner, via the oxygen atom of the deprotonated phenolic OH-group and nitrogen atoms of the azomethine and imino group of the aminoguanidine moiety. For the first time it was possible to make a comparative analysis of the structural properties of ligand salts and the coordinated ligand, so the effects of coordination could be unequivocally pointed out. Common fragments encountered in ligand structures were compared by half-normal probability plots. Density functional theory calculations have been conducted in order to gain insight into reactive properties of the investigated molecules. Molecular electrostatic potential, average local ionization energy surfaces, and Fukui functions have been calculated in order to obtain further information on the reactive properties.
