A series of novel Schiff bases derived from dipicolinic acid was synthesized and evaluated for antioxidant and
iron chelating activity. In most cases Schiff bases derived from di-hydrazide showed higher antioxidant activity than the
ones derived from mono-hydrazide and some of them are very promising considering the fact of being better antioxidants
than the standards used in the investigation. For iron chelating activity substituents had a greater impact on the activity
than mono or di-hydrazide skeleton.
