Microwave irradiation was used to prepare Zn(II), Cd(II) and Hg(II) complexes with 4 hydroxypyridine (4-HP) and azide ion as ligands. The structures of these complexes were arrived on the basis of metal estimation, elemental analysis, conductivity measurement and spectral data. All the complexes and the ligand 4-HP were screened for their antimicrobial activities.
