    • Abstract


      Equilibria between the derivatives ofo-hydroxy naphthaldehyde and protons or bivalent metal ions have been investigated potentiometrically at constant ionic strength while varying the solvents in definite ratios (solvent: water). The method of Bjerrum and Calvin as modified by Irving and Rossotti (1954) has been used to find the values of$$\tilde n$$ and pL. The formation constants of metal chelates have been calculated using a weighted least squares method. The values of$$S_{\min } = \chi ^2 $$ have also been calculated. The order of stability constants is determined as Mg2+<Mn2+<Cd2+<Pb2+<Zn2+<Co2+<Ni2+<Cu2+<UO22+ Solvent effects on stability constants and comparative studies of both the derivatives ofo-hydroxy naphthaldehyde have been reported.
