The reaction of 2-hydroxy-N-phenylbenzamide with 2-aminobenzenethiol yielded 2-hydroxy-N-phenylbenzamidebenzothiazoline (H2-Saly · BTZ/HO⋂N⋂SH). The reaction of H2-Saly · BTZ with PhSbCl2, SbCl3, and BiCl3 under varied reaction conditions (microwave, as well as conventional method) gave corresponding antimony( III) and bismuth(III) Schiff base compounds (substitution along with addition) in different coordination environments. These complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, IR and NMR (1H and 13C) spectral studies. The ligand was found to bifunctional tridentate, as well as monodentate for different starting materials of metal (Sb/Bi), as well as for different reaction conditions, hence, suitable coordination environments and pseudotrigonal bipyramidal geometry for the antimony and bismuth complexes have been proposed. Their biological activities have also been checked against many fungi and bacteria. The complexes were found to be more toxic than the corresponding ligand. The article is published in the original.
