The synthesis and characterisation of some new hexa-coordinated Schiff base complexes of the type [RuCl(CO)(EPh3)(B)(L)] (E = P or As; B = PPh3 or AsPh3 or py or pip; L = anion of the Schiff bases derived from 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde and aniline, 4-chloroaniline or 2-methylaniline) are reported. I.r., electronic, 1H-n.m.r, 31P-n.m.r. spectra, catalytic activity and antibacterial activity of the complexes are discussed. An octahedral structure has been tentatively proposed for all the complexes.
