Reaction of dimethyl-2-(2-thien-2-yl-2-
thioxoethylidene)-1,3-dithiole-4,5-dicarb- oxylate 1 and
one 10 respectively with transition metal salts, e.g.
NaAuCl4.2H2O, NiCl2.6H2O, CoCl2 and HgCl2 furnished
the C-S-Metal complexes in a simple and a satisfactory
manner. These complexes were screened as antimicrobial
agents against a number of important bacteria such as
Bacillus subtilus, Staphylococcus and Lactococcus and
gave remarkable and observed inhibition zones.
