New binuclear Mn (II),Co (II),Ni (II),Cu (II),Zn(II),Cd (II), and Pb(II), of (1Z,2Z,5Z,6Z)-diethyl N'1,N'6-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-2,5-bis(1-((2-hydroxyphenyl) amino)ethylidene)hexanebis(imidate) dihydrate have been prepared and characterized using elemental and thermal analysis, IR,UV-VIS, 1H-NMR,mass spectroscopy, magnetism, conductivity and ESR measurements. The conductivity data indicate non electrolytic in nature. The elemental and spectral data confirmed distorted octahedral structure of the complexes. The ESR spectra show the complexes anisotropic and isotropic type with covalent bond character. The invitro cytotoxic activity of the ligand and some of its complexes have been studied against liver cancer carcinoma.
