We depict the synthesis of two new Schiff base ligands, formed by the condensation of 2-hydroxy-3- methoxybenzaldehyde with 2-amino-5-methylpyridine or 2-amino-5-bromopyridine. All of these ligands have been characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR and Mass spectral data. The molecular. geometry of 2-(5- methylpyridin-2-ylimino)methyl)-6-methoxyphenol has been determined by single crystal X-ray study. It reveals that this ligand exist in phenol-imine tautomeric form in the solid state. The reaction of these ligands with Cull and NiII resulted in the formation of mononuclear complexes having the general composition [ML1,NO3].H2O. These complexes have been characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, metal-estimation, molar conductivity, IR, UV-Visible, ESI-Mass, thermal analysis and magnetic measurements. Non-electrolytic behavior of complexes indicates the absence of counter ion. The studies indicate a square planar geometry of the metal complexes. The Schiff base ligands and their metal complexes have been tested for antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive bacteria; Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis and Gram-negative bacteria; Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
