A simple and sensitive spectrophotometric method has been established for the determination of copper in water and soil sample. The method simply involves the chelation of Dimethylglyoxime ligand with Copper under optimal conditions. The method is based on the formation of 1:2 complexes between Copper and Dimethylglyoximine. The optimal condition for the determination of copper was established. The Beer’s law was applicable in the range 0.05 to 0.995 μg/ml. The molar extinction coefficient of the said complex was found to be 1.2 × 105 mol-1 cm-1. The method was successfully applied for the determination of Copper in the water and soil samples.
