Full Papers


Complexes of vanillinsemicarbazone (VSC) with MnII, FeII, CoII, NiII, CuII, ZnII, CdII and HgII have been prepared and characterised by elemental analyses, molar conductance, magnetic susceptibility and spectral data. Probable structures for the complexes are suggested on the basis of their physico-chemical properties. The fungitoxicity of VSC and the isolated complexes have been tested on pathogenic fungi.
