Some ruthenium(III) complexes with aryl-azo 2,4-pentanedione as co-ligands (LH1-LH3) have been synthesized and characterized spectroscopically IR, H1 NMR, UV/Vis, ESR, conductimetric) along with elemental analysis and FAB-mass data. Their luminescent and redox properties have been studied. The antibacterial, anti-HIV and antitmnour activities have also been reported.
