The design and synthesis of the new amino acid Schiff base, N-(2-hydroxy-1-naphthalidene)phenylglycine (Hhnpg) has been described along with the single crystal X-ray crystallographic studies. Copper(II), nickel(II), cobalt(II), manganese(II) and zinc(II) complexes of Hhnpg were synthesized for the first time, and were characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, conductivity measurements, spectral (i.r., 1H-n.m.r., u.v.–vis., e.p.r.), magnetic and thermal studies. The i.r. spectral studies of all the complexes exhibit a similar feature about the ligating nature of the ligand to the metal ions and reveal that the ligand has coordinated through the carbonyl oxygen, azomethine nitrogen and deprotonated hydroxyl oxygen. The conductance data of the complexes suggest them to be non-electrolytes. The microbial activity of the ligand and the complexes was investigated.
