Sixteen metal ions viz; Li (I), Mg (II), Sr (II), Ca (II), Mn (II), Co (II), Ni (II), Cu (II), Zn (II), Cd (II), Ba (II), Pb (II), Al (III), Cr (III), Fe (III) and Th (IV) were selected to elucidate their interaction with folic acid using potentiometric method. The protonation and stability constants of formed complexes have been calculated using ionic strength, I = 0.2 M NaNO 3 in aqueous solutions at 25±0.1 ºC. Complexes of 1:1, 1:2 and/or 1:3 metal to ligand ratios were formed depending on

The stiochiometry of the formed complexes was confirmed by conductometric method. Also, the ionic equilibria of ligand and its complexes with different metal ions in solution were investigated.
