Gour University, Sagar-470 003, Madhya Pradesh, India E-mail: Manuscript received 7 September 2004, revised 10 May 2005, accepted 30 December 2005 Physicochemical and microbial studies on CoII-ascorbic acid complex have been done in solid and aqueous phase. On the basis of elemental analysis, polarographic studies and amperometric titrations, the metal : drug ratio has been worked out to be 1 : 1. IR spectral studies have been used

Eschirichia coli, Salmonella typhi, Vibrio cholerae and Diploccocus pneumoniae. The results of the microbial studies with the metal : drug complex revealed that the drug : metal complex is more potent against the pathogenic bacteria as compared to the pure drug, ascorbic acid.
