Present co-ordination chemistry provides a valuable tool to design aromatics which are promising for future researches. Current era finds an interest in improving the versions of previously reported aromatics. Hence, prominent activities seem to be a result of Co-ordinating behaviour between ligands and the concerned metal ion. In the thematic issue we synthesized transition metal complexes with N/S donor ligands. The structures of the obtained complexes were characterized by FT-IR, NMR, elemental analysis, ESR spectral studies, conductometric and magnetic moment measurements. The magnetic moments and electronic spectral studies suggests that the complex has distorted octahedral geometry with unpaired electron lying in dx2-y2 orbital giving 2B1g as the ground state. The synthesized metal complexes were successfully investigated for biological activities namely antibacterial, antifungal, DNA binding and cleavage activity and plant growth regulatory activity. Based upon their widest applicability performa, we report herein the synthesis and characterization of metal complexes and the pronounced biocidal activities of the novel complexes.
