In current study thiosemicarbazone has been selected due to great therapeutic importance. Prepration, characterization, solution and antimicrobial study of Mn(II) thiosemicarbazone has been carried out. Solution studies on the complexes have also been carried out in different micellar systems at 25 oC and data have been compared with ethanol water mixture. Formation constants and molar ions in 60% ethanol were determined. Stability constants have been calculated from pH metric study.The conductivity of ligand and metal ligand complexes have been obtained in Triton X- 100 and polyoxethylene (23) lauryether. Association constants and formation constants have been calculated by molar conductance.
