Ni(II) and Zn(II) complexes of the bidentate thiol ligand N-traps-cinnamylidene-2-mercaptoaniline which is obtained from traps-cinnamaldehyde and 2-mercaptoaniline were prepared and characterized by their IR absorption spectra, X-ray powder diffraction measurements, elemental analysis and H-1-NMR spectra. On the other hand, energy minimization studies of the molecules were carried out to obtain the most probable three-dimensional molecular conformations. The comparative H-1-NMR, IR, X-ray powder diffraction and energy minimization studies have shown that metal atoms are connected to the N and S atoms of Schiff bases and the complex have cis type fashion.
