A novel analytical reagent, 4-(2-hydroxyphenylethamino)benzene-1,3-diol was synthesized for determination of nickel(II) in biological samples and plant materials by extractive differential pulse polarography. The analysis of nickel(II) was carried out by extracting the nickel(II)-(4-(2-hydroxyphenylethamino)benzene-1,3-diol) complex from chloroform prior to injecting into the instrument. The electrochemical behavior of nickel(II) complex was studied under optimum parameters like effect of pH, pulse amplitude, scan rate and choice of solvent. The calibration curve was constructed in the concentration range of 0.05-42 µg mL-1 at pH 4.0 (acetate buffer) with a correlation coefficient of 0.992, respectively. Interference of diverse ions was also investigated during the analysis of nickel(II) to optimize the conditions. The accuracy and validity of the proposed method were checked by the analysis of Certified Reference Materials which is distributed by the National Institute of Standard Technology
