4-Pyridinecarboxylic acid [(2-hydroxyphenyl)methylene]hydrazide (L1) and its 5-methoxy derivative (L2) were synthesised by condensing 2-hydroxy benzaldehyde or 2-hydroxy -5- methoxy benzaldehyde with isoniazid. The ligands were characterised by elemental analysis, IR, UV-Visible and NMR spectra. The Cu (II), Zn (II) and Co (II) complexes were synthesised using metal salts with different anions .The composition of the complexes remained the same irrespective of the anionic part. The ligand acts as dibasic tridentate in copper and zinc complexes and monobasic bidentate in cobalt complexes. The ligands show keto-enol tautomerism and the enol form was involved in complexation. Complexes were characterised by elemental analysis, IR, UV-Visible, NMR, ESR and Mass spectra, conductivity and magnetic susceptibility studies .The ligands and complexes were subjected for antitumor and antifungal studies. The antitubercular activities of the ligands were predicted using the PASS prediction server.
