Now a day’s the remarkable biological activity of hydrazone and the dependence of their mode of chelation with metal ions present in living system have been a significant interest. Inspite of a large number of antibiotics and chemotherapeutics available for medical use, at the same time the emergence of old and new antibiotic resistance created in the last decades revealed a substantial medical need for new classes of antimicrobial agents. Due to the outbreak of infectious diseases caused by different pathogenic bacteria and fungi, researchers are looking towards hydrazone metal complexes as a new antimicrobial agent. This review aims at highlighting the antimicrobial activities of hydrazone metal complexes, within years from 2010 to 2016.
