A total of five new metal complex derivatives of 2N-salicylidene-5-(p-nitro phenyl)-1,3,4thiadiazole, HL with the metal ions Vo(II), Co(II), Rh(III), Pd(II) and Au(III) have been successfully prepared in alcoholic medium. The complexes obtained are characterized quantitatively and qualitatively by using micro elemental analysis, FTIR spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, 1 H & 13 C NMR, magnetic susceptibility and conductivity measurements. From the spectral study, all the

The preliminary in vitro antibacterial screening activity revealed that complexes 1-5 showed moderate activity against tested bacterial strains and slightly higher compared to the ligand, HL. ª 2013 Production and hosting by Elsevier B.V. on behalf of King Saud University.
