Abstract

Schiff base ligand derived from glycine and benzaldehyde was synthesized together with its metal complexes (zinc and cobalt). The solubility, IR analysis and conductivity measurement were carried out. Antibacterial activities were evaluated using well-diffusion method. The bacterial assay was carried out on two pyogenic bacteria E. coli and Staphylococci and the results showed that the complexes have high antibacterial activity.
