Newtransitionmetal complexes having higher oxidation state were prepared from ï¢-iketone. The ï¢-diketone (1-(5-chloro-2-hydroxyphenyl)-3-(3,4- dimethoxyphenyl) propane-1,3-dione) was obtained by template reaction of 2-hydroxy acetophenone with 3, 4 dimethoxy benzoic acid. The compounds were isolated as stable solid complexes with 1:2 metal to ligand ratio and characterized by elemental analysis, conductivity, magnetic measurements, electronic and IR spectroscopy. The XRDrecorded frompowder forms of all samples shows a definite crystalline system. The obtained lattice parameter values were found to be in good agreement with the proposed structures.All the metal complexes are screened for antibacterial and antifungal activities.
