A series of complexes of the type [M2L2Cl2], where L = 2-(salicylidene acetone–2'-imino) amino benzothiazole (HSAB) and 2-(salicyledene acetophenone-2'-imino) amino benzothiazole (HSPB), M = Cu (II), Co (II), Ni (II) and Zn (II), have been synthesized and characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, thermal analysis, molar conductivity, magnetic moment, electronic, infrared spectral studies. The results are in consistent with tridentate chelation of ligand with azomethine nitrogen, ring sulphur and oxygen atom
