Schiff bases, having amine group and their metal complexes are widely used for industrial purposes and also reveal a wide range of biological applications. This work describes the most promising biological activities. Cobalt metal complexes, the [Co(en)3]2NO3 has most potent inhibitory activity among three complexes, having 784.12 g/ml IC50 value while [Co(en)3]2Cl shows mild inhibition i.e. 47.390.83 %.
