Ruthenium(III) complexes of the type [RuBr 2 (PPh 3 ) 2 L] (where L = monobasic bidentate thiosemicarbazone ligand) have been synthesized. Various physico-chemical and spectral techniques were used to determine the structural features of the complexes. Absorption spectroscopy was used to investigate DNA binding of the complexes. It indicated that the complexes bind to DNA through intercalation. The complexes have shown significant antibacterial activity than the ligands against a panel of
