Metal chelates of 2-hydroxy-1,4-napthoquinone (L') and 5-hydroxy-1,4-naptho-quinone (L") with Cu, Ni, Co, Mn and Fe having composition ML2 2H2O have been synthesised, their structure assigned and screened for antimicrobial activities. The activity of metal chelates of compound (L") were found to be more than that of compound (L') against some micro-organisms.
