The metal complexes which were synthesized from organic compounds containing oxygen and nitrogen donors are of great interest for structural study. The derivative of quinine, lawson (2-hydroxy-1,4- naphthoquinone) is natural coloring matter and is also indicated in the treatment of various ailment and diseases and as disinfectant. The hydroxyl derivative of 1,4- naphthoquinone is of great interest due to its slight therapeutic property. The general method is adopted for preparation of oxime, the ligand 3-Aminolawsoneoxime (3-Amino-2-hydroxy, 4-keto 1-naphthoxime) was synthesized from 3-Amino-2-hydroxy-1, 4-Naphthoquinone. Some of the transition metal such as Fe, Co, Ni and Cu are in form of their salts were used for the complexation. The synthesized complexes were characterized by various physico-chemical techniques such as compositional studies and spectral studies. It has been found that the probable formulation of the complexes is M L (H2O) 2. Wherein M : L stoichiometry is 1:1.The spectral data while and magnetic studies of the metal complexes proposed distorted tetrahedral structure for Fe, Co and Ni complexes and square planer structure may be proposed for copper complex.
