The reactions were sensitive between seven rare earth (RE) metals Nd(III), La(III), Ce(III), Pr(III), Sm(III), Eu(III) and Gd(III) and dibromo-p-methylmethylsulfonazo (DBMMSA) in acidic solution. The spectral correction method has been applied in the determination of properties of RE complexes instead of ordinary spectrophotometry. Composition ratios, real molar absorptivities (ε) and stepwise stability constants (K) of each of the RE complexes were determined easily because the method eliminated the absorption influence of excess of ligand on complex. Results showed that the cumulativeK values of the complexes were between 3.91 × 1014 and 2.34 × 1028 and the real (not apparent) absorptivity between 8.85 × 104 and 2.12 × 105 l mol-1cm-1 at 640 nm.
