Bis(Delta(2)-2-imidazolinyl)-5,5'-dioxime (H2L) and its nickel, cobalt, zinc, cadmium and mercury complexes have been prepared and tested in vitro against different microorganisms in order to assess their antimicrobial properties. We used Bacillus subtilis RSKK 244, Micrococcus flavus, Streptococcus faecalis RSKK 500, Staphylococcus aureus RSKK 490 from Gram-positive bacteria; Pseudomonas aeruginosa RSKK 356, Salmonella typhimurium RSKK 1017, Escherichia coli RSKK 550, Enterobacter aerogenes RSKK 720 from Gram-negative bacteria, Candida tropicalis RSKK 665 and Penicillium raciborskii IMI 40568.
