Transition metal (II) complexes of the ligand 2-amino-4-(p-ethoxy phenyl) oxazole (C11H12N2O2) have been prepared. The complex is of the type (M2L2X2) where M= Cu, Co and Ni. The infrared studies suggest that 2-amino-4-(p-ethoxy phenyl) oxazole behaves as a bidentate ligand with nitrogen of amino group and oxygen of oxazole ring as two co-ordination sites. The structure of complexes was characterized with the help of their elemental analysis, IR, electronic and magnetic susceptibility studies. The magnetic and electronic spectral studies indicate an octahedral geometry for the complexes with the (M2L2X2) formula. These newly synthesized complexes were also screened for their antifungal activity against different fungi at different concentrations. The activity decreases with decrease of concentration and the metal complexes are less toxic than the parent ligand.
