A series of Ferrocene Schiff bases derived from glycine and their cobalt (II), copper (II), nickel (II), and zinc (II) metal complexes have been synthesized and characterized by IR, 1H NMR, MS and elemental analysis, the results conformed well with expected structures. The synthesized ligands, along with their metal (II) complexes, were screened in vitro for their antibacterial activity against three Gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Salmonella typhi) and two Gram-positive (Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus) bacterial strains. The results showed that the metal (II) complexes are more potent in antibacterial activity against one or more species in comparison with those of uncomplexed ligands.
