Cobalt (Co) complexes with the N2O2 category have been created synthetically by the reaction of salicylaldehyde / 3,4-diamino benzophenone with acetylacetone and glutaric anhydride respectively. The ligands and individual Cobalt (II) complexes were recognized through spectroscopical data (Fourier Transform Infrared, Ultra Violet-visible, proton and carbon-13 NMR, & Mass). Non-electrolytic in nature of the complex found from their molar conductivities (Ω-1cm2mol-1) in DMSO of 10-3M solution. The ESR revealed the geometry of the complexes to be octahedral. The Schiff base Cobalt (II) complex was characterized by anticancer activity and cytotoxicity
