A new Praseodymium (Pr) (III) complex has been synthesized and characterized by using a new amino acid-based (leucine) azo dye such as N,N-dimethylazoleucine (L1) and 1,10 phenanthroline (L2). Reaction of Pr(III) ion with L1 and L2 in 1 : 2 : 1 ratio in alcoholic medium has been carried out with general formula [Pr(L1)2(L2)(H2O)2]. Elemental analysis, comparative FT-IR, and 1HNMR spectral studies of Pr(III) complex with ligands have been shown in this paper.
