In the present study an intermolecular reductive Schiff base formation from 2-nitro pyridine and 2-hydroxy benzaldehyde carried out in the presence of iron powder and ammonium chloride. The Schiff base transition metal complexes with Fe(II), Cu(II), Ru(III) and Rh(III) have been synthesized which were characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic susceptibility, electronic spectra, IR and ESR spectroscopy. The biological activities have also been studied for the synthesized compounds.
Keywords: Schiff Base metal complexes, molar conductance, IR spectroscopy, anti bacterial activities.
