ABSTRACT:
The Schiff base complexes of Cu (II) and Ni (II) derived from 3-pyridine carboxaldehyde with histidine and tryptophan have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, FT - IR and magnetic susceptibility measurements. The Schiff base and its metal complexes show a good activity against the bacteria; Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeroginosa, E.coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus and fungi Aspergillus niger. The antimicrobial results also indicate that the metal complexes are better antimicrobial agents as compared to the Schiff bases.
