Abstract: A zinc metal complex has been synthesized and characterized by physical, spectral and analytical data. The biological activity of ligand and its complex was carried out against the selected strains of two Gram positive and eight Gram negative bacteria. Agar well diffusion method was employed for screening of metal complex against Gram positive (Xainthomonas Arconopdis, Acidovorax Tanpons, Xenorhabdus Luminescens, Kurthiagibsoni, Bordetella Pertussis, Brucella melitensis, Bacillus pumilus, Sarcina lutea, Micrococcusflavus) and Gram negative (Escherichia coli and Kurthiagibsoni). This complex was synthesized by reacting bipyridyl and glycine with respective metal chloride and characterized by using FTIR, UV-Vis spectroscopy, conductivity measurements, elemental analysis and X-ray crystallography. Thermal behavior suggest more ordered activated state in complex formation. The biological activities data showed that activity enhances upon complexation. The complex showed different activity against different strains of bacteria.
