Abstract :

Cinnamaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (CMTSC) was used as chromogenic reagent for Simultaneous spectrophotometric determination of Nickel (II) and Cobalt (II) ions. The reagent (CMTSC) gives intense yellow colour water soluble complexes with Nickel (II) and Cobalt (II) in presence of micellar medium (Triton–X–100 (5%) at pH 9.0. The maximum absorbance was observed at λmax 440 and 400 nm for Nickel (II) and Cobalt (II) respectively. The molar absorptivity and sandell’s sensitivity for Nickel (II) and Cobalt (II) complexes are found to be 4.77x104 , 4.70x104  L.mol–1 .cm–1  and 0.0012, 0.0012 µg/cm2  respectively. The reagent (CMTSC) forms 1:1 [M:L] complexes with Nickel (II) and Cobalt (II) with stability constants 8.17x 105  and 10.10x106  respectively. The First order derivative spectrophotometric technique has been developed for the simultaneous determination of Nickel (II) and Cobalt (II) at λmax 460 and 420 nm.
