The newly synthesized Schiff base has been condensing by 2-hydroxy-5-methyl acetophenone with ethylene diamine. The metal complexes were obtained as a result of interaction of Schiff base ligand and metal ions Cr(III), Mn(III) and Fe(III), have been synthesized and characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, Infrared, and 1H NMR, analysis. The Schiff base commonly coordinates through the oxygen atom of phenolic OH group and the nitrogen atom of azomethine group, which is confirmed by IR spectral data. Further conclusive evidence of the coordination of the Schiff bases with the metal ions was shown by the appearance of new bands due to v(M-N) and v(M-O) in the metal complexes. The metal complexes have been examined against the growth of bacteria to assess their microbial evolution.
Key words: Schiff base, Spectral, microbial studies
