A new Schiff base Co(II) complex and - peroxo complex were synthesized and characterized by thin layer chromatography (TLC), elemental analyses, magnetic moment, conductivity measurements, UV-Vis., IR and ESI-MS spectral studies. The cobalt ion was participated in direct complexation with the Schiff base (SB) ligand derived from o-aminobenzoic acid and cinnamaldehyde during the single pot reaction. IR spectral data showed that the Schiff base ligand coordinated to the metal ion through nitrogen of azomethine group and oxygen of carboxyl group (COO-). The molar conductance values indicated that both the complexes are non-electrolytic in nature. Antibacterial activity of the complexes was tested against four pathogenic bacteria namely Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli & Shigella dysenteriae with standard Kanamycin-30. The results showed that both type of complexes have moderate to strong antibacterial activity and the peroxo complex is relatively more potential towards all the tested organisms.
