Aniline was diazotized and coupled with Salicylic acid-Formaldehyde polymer and characterized duly. The ligand was designated as PSA and its metal chelates with Cu+2, Zn+2, Co+2, Fe3+, UO2 2+, Mn+2and Ni+2 metal ions were prepared. The PSA and its polymeric metal chelates were characterized by elemental analysis, spectral studies, thermogravimetry,diffuse reflectance spectral studies and magnetic susceptibilities. Chelation ion-exchanging properties of the polymers were also studied by empolying the batch equilibration method. All the samples have also been monitored for microbicidal activity.
