Abstract: Present paper focuses on the study of synthesis of metal complexes of zinc with schiff base (sal-leu or sal-ala), where sal= salicyladehyde, leu= leucine and ala= alanine, as primary ligands and 1,10-phenanthroline or 2,2-bipyridyl as secondary ligands. The synthesized complexes have been characterized by using UV-Vis, IR and CHN. The UV-Vis spectroscopic techniques have been further used to study the metal-protein binding by investigating the interaction of synthesized complexes with bovine serum albumin. The antimicrobial activities of these complexes have been tested against Arthrobacter Citrus and Aspergillus Fumigates. It has been observed that the complexes show better antimicrobial activity than ligand alone.
