Schiff bases and their metal complexes has been a subject of research for longer period of time and till date it is. Various researchers are aggressively focusing on synthesis of various schiff bases with different metal complexes and try to identify their unique properties. Such an attempt made here to identify the antimicrobial properties of m-nitro aniline schiff base and its two metal complex derivatives made up of copper and cobalt. Synthesis was confirmed by FTIR and antimicrobial activity was determined using E.coli and B.megaterium
