Four water soluble Schiff bases were prepared from the reaction of salicylaldehyde and 2-hydroxy-1-naphtaldehyde with 2-amino-2-methyl-1,3-dihydroxy propane and 2-amino-2-methoxy-1,3-dihydroxy propane. Two of the Schiff bases were characterized using elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray diffraction. In addition cyclic voltammetric studies were performed. The Schiff bases C11H5NO4 (II) and C15H17NO3 (III) crystalize in monoclinic space group P2(1)/c with unit cell dimensions a = 10.499(2), b = 8.725(2), c = 12.635(10) angstrom, beta = 101.649(11); a = 14.579(8) b = 9.834(13), c = 9.542(5) angstrom, beta = 107.559(5) respectively.
