Isothiocyanato Fe(III) complex with (E)-N,N,N-trimethyl-2-oxo-2-(2-(1-(pyridin-2-yl)ethylidene)hydrazinyl)ethan-1-aminium was synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy and X-ray analysis. Octahedral geometry of Fe(III) complex consist of deprotonated form of hydrazone ligand coordinated through pyridine nitrogen, azomethine nitrogen and carbonyl oxygen atoms and three isothiocyanato ligands in the rest coordination places. The measured effective magnetic moment for Fe(III) complex corresponds to high spin Fe(III) ion. The hydrazone ligand and its Fe(III) complex showed lower activity against the tested microbial strains than standard antimicrobial drugs
