Abstract: The Present research work describes the synthesis, spectral and antibacterial studies on the few complexes of Copper (II) with pyrimidine derivatives. The characterizations of the compounds have been carried out on the basis of elemental analysis, infrared, electronic spectra and magnetic susceptibility studies. Antibacterial activities of these ligands and complexes have also been reported on S.aureus and E.coli microorganisms. The diffuse reflectance spectrums of the complexes show bands in the region around 11000 cm-1 to 25000cm-1 assignable to 2Eg ? 2T2g, 2B1g ? 2A1g transitions. These are also typical of octahedral environment around the Copper. The magnetic moment (1.87 BM) of the complex indicates high octahedral environment. The microwave method of synthesis of complexes have been found easier, convenient and ecofriendly.

Keywords: Microwave, amide, Copper (II).
