Abstract: Spectrophotometric procedure for the determination of metal ion representatives from the three subgroups of lanthanide series, namely Neodymium (III) & Samarium (III) of Cerium group; Gadolinium (III) & Terbium (III) of Terbium family and Dysprosium (III) & Holmium (III) of Yttrium family has been studied using 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol (PAN) as a chromogenic reagent in micellar media. The reported procedure avoids the use of carcinogenic molecular solvents. The method is based on the formation of an intense red colored ML<sub>3</sub> type of complex (L=PAN and M= Ln <sup>3+</sup>) in the <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">p</i>H range 8.5–9.5, soluble in all the three micellar media under study, viz. <span style="mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt;letter-spacing:-.1pt" lang="EN-GB">Sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS), <span style="mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt;letter-spacing:-.1pt" lang="EN-GB">Cetyl trimethyl ammonium <span style="mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt; letter-spacing:-.2pt" lang="EN-GB">bromide (CTAB) and Triton X-100.
