The metal complexes of Azo dye; 4,4'-((methylene bis(3,l-phenylen)) bis (diazene-l,2-diyl)) bis(1,3-Benzenediol) are produced from 4,4`- methylenedianiline and Resorcinol were synthesized and characterized by using several analytical and spectral techniques. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by many chemo-physic methods like NMR, IR, UV-Vis, molar conductance measurement, analytical measurement, and melting point. The conditions of optimal reaction  (for instance reagent concentration, pH etc) were studied and the analytical figures of merit such as limit of detection, linearity, sensitivity etc) were obtained.
