Novel Pd(II), Cr(III), Ni(II) and Co(II) metal complexes of Schiff bases were synthesized from the condensation reaction between salicylaldehyde and aniline (L1) and sulphadiazine (L2). They were characterized using FTIR and UV-Visible spectroscopy and subjected to conductivity, melting point and solubility measurements. The complexes are non-toxic, non-electrolytic and stable solids. The involvement of the azomethine nitrogen in coordination with the metals was confirmed by the IR and UV results. They showed good inhibitory activities against various microorganisms.
Keywords: Aniline Schiff bases, Sulphadiazine Schiff bases, Transition metal complexes, Antimicrobial properties, Synthesis, Spectral studies.
