Antimicrobial Activity of Mixed Schiff Base Ligand Complexes of Ni(II), Cu(Ii) and Zn(II) | Original Article
The ability of Schiff bases to form complexes with transition metal ions makes them a particularly significant family of organic molecules.Complexes of nickel(II), copper(II), and zinc(II) with a variety of Schiff base ligands.. The Schiff bases coordinate via the deprotonated phenolic oxygen or azomethine nitrogen atoms, making them bidentate monobasic ligands. Reflux screening was used to examine ligands and mixed ligand complexes for antibacterial activity. Antimicrobial activity of metal complexes is shown to be greater than that of the free ligand.
