Structural modification of organic molecule has considerable biological relevance. Further, coordination of a biomolecules to the metal ions significantly alters the effectiveness of the biomolecules. In view of the antimicrobial activity ligand [bis-(2-aminobenzaldehyde)] malonoyl dihydrazone], metal complexes with Cu(II), Ni(II), Zn(II) and oxovanadium(IV) have been synthesized and found to be potential antimicrobial agents. An attempt is also made to correlate the biological activities with

The structural assessment of the complexes has been carried out based on electronic, infrared and molar conductivity values.
