The synthesis and application of azo dyes synthesized from naphthylamine to give diazoniumsalt solution. This salt is then coupled with various substituted phenols which furnish derivatives of azo dyes. These are the largest group of organic dyes for their applications in many areas of dyestuff industry, pharmacy due to the presence of azo (-N=N-) linkage. The present work is an efficient method for the synthesis of 1-naphthyl-azo-2-napthanol with the high yielded product, water as a solvent, short time, low temperature, efficient method. The structures of synthesized compounds were confirmed using spectroscopic technique IR, 1H-NMR, Mass spectra. UV absorption study of the synthesized compounds and interaction of 1-napthyl-azo-2-napthanol with different transition metal ion in basic and acidic solutions.
