The Schiff base complexes of transition metals have been widely used in biological, industrial and analytical fields. The present work is synthesis and characterization of some complexes. The complexes K2[Ni(C­31H26N4O4)2], K2[Ni(C29H384O4)2], and K2[Ni(C41H62N4O2)4], have been prepared by the reaction of Schiff bases with nickel(II) acetate tetrahydrate in the presence of base (KOH) in 2:1 molar ratio. The Schiff base ligands e.g. L'H2, L''H and L'''H were prepared from the reaction of malonodihydrazide with 4-benzyloxybenzaldehyde, 4-hexyloxybenzaldehyde and 4-dodecyloxybenzaldehyde.

The complexes 1-3 have been characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, metal estimation, magnetic moments, conductance measurements, IR and UV-visible spectra and study of other physical properties. The suggested structures of the complexes 1-3 are square planar in nature.
