Abstract: Transition metal complexes of Co(II), Cu(II) and Mn(II) Containing Bidentate Schiff base, derived from the condensation of ethylenediamine and cinnamaldehyde were synthesized and characterized by IR, UV- Vis., and some physical measurements. IR spectral studies show the binding sites of the Schiff base ligand with the metal ion. Molar conductance data and magnetic susceptibility measurements give evidence for monomeric and electrolytic nature of the complexes. The complexes have been found to have moderate antimicrobial activity against the tested bacteria.
