The antifungal activity of embelin (2,5 dihydroxy 3-undecyl- pbenzoquinone) and its complexes with Co (II), Ni (II), Cu (II) and Zn (II) have been evaluated against Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger by using agar diffusion method. These compounds showed significant enhancement in activity at higher concentrations of the complexes but moderate activity as compared to fluconazole and clotrimazole.
