Nano dithiocarbamate (DTC) complex have been prepared by reaction between dithiocarbamate and metal salt under ultrasound irradiation. Reaction conditions such as the ligand DTC and phennantroline concentration, aging time and the ultrasonic device power show important roles in the size, morphology and growth process of the final products. The dithiocarbamate complex nanoparticles have been prepared by water solvent. The ultrasonic treatment applied for preparation nanoparticles. The antibacterial activity of nanoparticles derivatives tested against microorganism and compared with non-nano conditions. The resulting nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
