Light has ever been the vehicle of discovery, of definition; and, quantized in spectrophotometry, it emerged as an analytical probe for low concentrations of chromophores. This interaction of matter and energy provided a mode for computing the formation constants of several symmetrical nickel (II) dioxime chelates in non-aqueous media. As a preliminary step in an on-going study, this thesis is one of possibilities rather than absolutes. Hopefully, others may find here fuel for that flash of insight which will further dissipate the darkness of unknowing.
