Transition metal complexes of Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) with a new bisazo ligand 1,3-Bis (4,5-diphenyl imidazole azo) benzene (BABI) derived from m-phenylenediamine and 4,5-diphenyl imidazole were synthesized. The preparation of the complexes have been conducted after fixing the optimum conditions such as pH and concentration .UV- visible spectra of these complexes solution have been studied for a range of pH and concentration which obey Lampert-Beers Law .The structure of complexes are deduced according to mole ratio method which were obtained from the spectroscopic studies of the complexes solution .The ratios of metal: ligand obtained are (1:1) for these complexes . (UV-Vis) absorption spectra of ethanolic solution of complexes showed bathchromic shift , as compared with that of free ligand .The infrared spectra of the chelating complexes have been studied , Depending on these results the coordination between our ligand and the metal ions take place. The conductivity measurements , elemental analysis ,the percentage of metal ions was determined .Depending on these results ,we may conclude that the ligand was tetradentate . Also the proposed geometrical structure of the complexes of Co(II),Ni(II) and Cu(II) ions are octahedral.
