Six new mixed-ligand complexes of Mo(IV) and W(IV) ions have been prepared and characterized. The three new complexes of Mo(IV) ions have the molecular formulae MoC12N2O5H18, MoC15N2O5H22 and MoC14N2O6H19 , while the W(II) ions are WC12N2O5H18, WC15N2O5H22 and WC14N2O6H19. The structures of the complexes were deduced from their ir, 1H nmr, and mass spectral studies. All the complexes were found to exhibit octahedral structures. Their antimicrobial activities against some bacteria and fungi species were found to be moderate.
