SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERISATION AND BIOLOGICAL STUDIES OF [M(CIN)2(N2H4)2] (M=NI/CD)
Ni (II) and Cd (II) complexes containing hydrazine as ligand and cinnamic acid as co-ligand were synthesized and characterized by hydrazine and metal analyses, thermal analysis and FT-IR spectral studies. It has been found that hydrazine behaves as bidentate ligand and cinnamate as monodentate ligand in the complexes. The biological activities of complexes have been evaluated against two gram negative (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and two gram positive (Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus) bacteria by Agar diffusion disc method. It has been found that the complexes have potent activity against the bacteria.
