    A new very sensitive and selective chromogenic reagents prepared by the reaction of Schiff base with maleic anhydride (MA) and 1,4-butane (I), ethylene (II), 1,6-hexamethylene (III) and 1,2-propane diol (IV), respectively, were synthesized and studied for the determination of trace lead in detail. In 0.1molL?1 NaOH medium, lead reacts with polyester to form a yellow complex, which gives a maximum absorption at 462, 478, 482 and 495 nm using I, II, III and IV respectively. Beer?s law is obeyed over the concentration ranges 0.04-1.20?gmL?1, whereas optimum concentration ranges as adopted from Ringbom method was 0.10-1.05?gmL?1. The molar absorptivity, Sandell sensitivity, detection and quantifi cation limits are also calculated Ca (3500-fold), Mg (2250-fold), Sr (1250-fold), Ba (1000-fold), Al (1500-fold), Bi (800-fold), Fe (2500-fold) Co (1100-fold), Ni (1000-fold), Cu (900-fold), Zn (130..
