This paper presents models for the estimation of stability constants (K 1 and β 2) of nickel(II), copper(II) and zinc(II) mono- and bis-complexes with 5 Schiff bases (salicylideneglycine, salicylidenealanine, salicylideneserine, salicylidenephenylalanine, and salicylidenetyrosine). The models were based on the molecular-graph theory and valence molecular connectivity index of the 3rd order, 3χv , derived from it. Univariate linear models were developed for each metal separately, while in the common models for two and three metals, the indicator variable, In, was introduced. The standard error of models for the log K 1 constant was less than 0.12, while for log β 2 models, the S.E. did not exceed 0.14. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
