Schiff base ligands and their transition metal complexes have covered a large field in chemistry that is being noticed. Schiff base ligands are viewed as special ligands since they are easily prepared by condensation reaction between aldehyde derivatives and amines. However they have simple preparation method; but their versatile applications make it unique compound in coordination chemistry, analytical chemistry, catalysis, pharmaceutical chemistry etc. The biological activities (e.g. antimicrobial, antitumour, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antifungal, analgesic etc.) of Schiff bases and their complexes have been widely studied. This review is ornately pronounced the synthesis and versatile applications of some Schiff bases with their transition metal complexes.
