New complexes of Amoxicillin with some transition metal ions such as Ag(I), Cu(II), Co(II), Zn(II) and Ni(II) has been synthesized and characterized on the basis of physical, spectral and analytical data. These complexes have also been screened for their antibacterial activity against several bacterial strains such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aurous, Pseudonomous aerugionosa. The metal complexes showed enhanced antibacterial activity as compared to simple antibiotic. The present study was carried out in the search of target antibiotic moiety instead of broad-spectrum antibiotic.
