N'-[1-(2,4-Dihydroxyphenyl)ethylidene]benzohydrazide (DHPEBH) was synthesized and characterized by IR, mass, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and DEPT. The HyperChem 7.5 software was used for quantum mechanical calculations. The geometry optimization was carried out using ab initio method. The theoretical spectral data and QSAR parameters were generated with semi empirical single point PM3 method. The HOMO and LUMO frontier orbital energies were also computed for the optimized molecule. The experimental and theoretical spectral data are nearly comparable. As the title compound has potential electron donor atoms, the metal ion interaction studies were also carried out. The pH-metry studies indicated the presence of three dissociable protons in DHPEBH. The solid complexes of title compound with CuII , NiII , ColI and Mnll were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, mass, IR, TGA and DTA.
