Due to their borad profiles of biological activities, transition metal complexes containing semicarbazones and thiosemicarbazones become largely appealing. This mini review focused on the recent developments in last 5 years on the biological applications of Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes of semicarbazones and thiosemicarbazones.
