The complex of 2,6-diacetylpyridinedihydrazone (L) with lead(II) and azide has been characterized by elemental analyses, FTIR, and single-crystal X-ray analysis. The Pb(C9H13N11) (1) crystallized in the monoclinic space group C2/c. The coordination of 1 exhibits a gap around the lead(II), possibly occupied by a stereochemically active electron lone pair on lead(II) resulting in a hemidirected complex. Antimicrobial activity of the complex is higher than the free ligand.
