Mixed metal complexes of N acetyl cysteine as a primary ligand and some amino acids such as alanine, methionine, tryptophan, aspartic acid and glutamic acid used as secondary ligands with metal ions zinc (II) and nickel (II) were synthesized. The prepared ternary complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, thermal analysis, molar conductivity measurement and IR, UV-Visible spectral studies. The spectral studies indicated octahedral geometry for nickel (II) complexes and a tetrahedral geometry was proposed for zinc (II) complexes.
