Mixed ligand complexes of cobalt(II) and nickel(II) with a Mannich base derived from benzaldehyde, pyrrolidine and urea, i.e., pyrrolidinobenzylurea and nitrate ion have been synthesized and characterized. The analytical data include elemental analysis, determination of molar mass, conductivity, spectral and X-ray power diffraction studies. The antibacterial activity of the ligand and the metal complexes have also been studied.
