Metal chelates of P-amino-salycylic acid (PAS) with VO(II),Cu(II),Ni(II)Co(II)Fe(II),Mn(II) and Zn(II) have been prepared and characterised by analytical IR-Spectral and thermal studies. They have been screened for antifungal activities against a series of pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi. The in vitro filter paper disk method was used exclusively for testing activities. The chelates in comparison to PAS were found to posses remarkable antifungal potential.
