Antioxidant Activity of Schiff Bases and Their Metal Complexes: A Recent Review
K.T. Tadele*

Schiff bases and their complexes are versatile compounds prepared from the condensation of primary amines with carbonyl groups. Schiff bases are very important compounds in various fields, especially in medicinal and pharmaceutical fields because of their wide spectrum of biological activities. The activity is usually increased by complexion therefore understanding the properties of both ligands and metals can lead to the synthesis of highly active compounds. Some of these compounds are identified as having high capacity in scavenging free radicals. This review summarizes the synthesis and antioxidant activities of Schiff bases and its complexes.
