The new ligand 1,1,2,2-tetrakis(sodium thioproponate) ethylene, has been prepared from the reaction of disodium salt of 3-mercaptoproponic acid and tetrachloroethylene in (4:1) molar ratio. Diand tetranuclear complexes were obtained by direct reaction of the above ligand with Co+2, Ni+2, Cu+2, Zn+2 and Hg+2 metal ion in (1:2) and (1:4) ligand to metal molar ratio. The prepared complexes were characterization by elemental analysis, spectral studies (FTIR.,UV/vis), magnetic measurements, conductivity measurements. Electronic spectra and magnetic moment values indicate the presence of tetrahedral geometric around the metal ions.
