A ligand which has reactive dye character and its transition metal complexes such as Cu(II), Co(II), Cr(III), Ni(II) containing vinylsulfone and fluorine groups were synthesized. The diazotation reaction has been studied at 0-5°C carefully. Completion of the reaction was monitored by the TLC method. FT-IR, UV, 1H-NMR, TGA and microanalysis methods were used for determination of the synthesized compounds. We assumed that copper complex indicated dimeric structure based on magnetic susceptibility result. All the synthesized compounds which have dye character were applied on cotton, polyamide and nylon fibers. Their dyeing and fastness properties were investigated according to international standards. These properties gave good results for all synthesized dyes except light fastnesses of chromium and nickel complex dyes.
