A variety of amino acids and aldehydes or ketones are employed in a condensation process to produce schiff bases, which are useful chemical molecules. These ligands are regarded as favored since they may be easily produced via condensation. As an O2 detector, they have a variety of applications in the fields of medicine and pharmacology coordination chemistry biological activities food packaging dyes and polymer. Imine derivative semicarbazone is formed via the condensation of semicarbazide and a suitable ketone or aldehyde with the imine group. Transition metal complexes including copper, zinc, and cadmium are good precursors for the production of metal or metal chalcogenide nanoparticles because they contain Imine ligands. Due to multiple applications in pharmacology such as antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, antimalarial, antituberculosis, cancer-fighting, anti-HIV, catalytic oxidation of organic molecules and nanotechnology, researchers have focused a great deal of their attention on Schiff bases in recent years. In this paper review the application, structure and properties of some schiff base metal complexes.
