A new azo-conjugated catecholate ligand, azocat, and its nickel complexes were synthesized, and their physical and chemical properties were investigated. The complex with one azocat shows no obvious photo-response, whereas the compound with two azocat's causes a little photoisomerization. Both of these novel azo-conjugated catecholate complexes show remarkable proton responses.
