An azo dye UAAP and Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II)complexes were synthesized and characterized using elemental analysis, mass spectra, UV- Vis, fluorescence spectra, ESR spectrum, IR spectra, NMR spectra, NLO property, molar conductance and magnetic measurements. The spectral and analytical data reveal that UAAP act as both bidentate and tridentate ligand. The molar conductance data reveal that complexes Co(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) are nonelectrlytic and Mn(II), Ni(II) 1:2 electrolyte in nature. Based on all data structures were proposed for UAAp and complexes. The UAAP and metal complexes were screened for antimicrobial activity, antioxidant study, DNA cleavage analysis and anticancerous investigation.
