The flexibility of zinc coordination, which allows different coordination modes and fast ligand exchange, has been suggested to be one key catalytic feature of the zinc ion which makes it an invaluable metal in biological catalysis. Mixed ligand Complexes of the Schiff base Zn(II) metals sources have been synthesized and characterized using FTIR,UV-visible spectra, metal estimation, TLC and magnetic moments measurements. Antimicrobial activity of the prepared complexes were measured as resistance to antimicrobial agents is emerging in a wide variety of nosocomial and community-acquired pathogens. The results of the study infers though zinc and salicylic acid individually demonstrated potential biological activities, however, when they were in the form of complex the biological activities were found inferior.
