    • Abstract


      A series of complexes of salicylic acid-thiourea-trioxane polymer andp-hydroxybenzoic acid-thiourea-trioxane polymer respectively were isolated and characterised by elemental analysis and infrared data. The antimicrobial activity of these complexes against various bacteria and fungi is studied, which indicates that in several cases, the complexes possess fairly highly anti-microbial activity. A probable mechanism for the toxic action of these complexes against various organisms is discussed. ir spectra of complexes are also discussed.
