Heterobimetallic complexes of Zn(II) and Sn(IV) with sarcosine have been synthesized at room temperature under stirring conditions by the reaction of sarcosine and zinc acetate in 2 : 1 molar ratio followed by the stepwise addition of CS 2 and organotin(IV) halides, where R = Me, n- Bu, and Ph. The complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR and NMR ( 1 H, 13 C) spectroscopy. IR data showed that the ligand acts in a bidentate manner. NMR data revealed the four coordinate geometry in solution state. In vitro antimicrobial activities data showed that complexes ( 3 ) and ( 4 ) were effective against bacterial and fungal strains with few exceptions.
