In this study, thioacetamide and salicylaldehyde were condensed together to form 2-(thioacetylimino)methyl]phenol (LH), which further reacts with metals As (III), Sb(III) and Bi(III) chloride in ratio of 1:1 and 2:1respectively, to form complexes. All these were characterized by 1HNMR, 13CNMR and IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis and reported literature studies. On the basis of all supporting information, all metal complexes (M/L) in 1:1 (ML1) and1:2 (ML2) showed 4 and 5 coordinated geometry, distorted trigonal bipyramidal and distorted octahedral, respectively. These complexes showed good antibacterial, antifungal and antitubarcular activities.
