Polymer metal complexes of poly vinyl alcohol acetal and Cu+2, Ni+2, Zn+2 and Ag+1 were synthesized from the reaction of PVA with 4-methoxybenzyldehyde. All compounds were characterized by FT-IR, UV-Visible, TGA, DTA, TG and Biological activity. The results showed that Polycyclicacetal behaved as bidentate through its oxygen atom of hydroxyl (O-H) groups of modified PVA. The tetrahedral geometrical was suggested for Cu+2, Zn+2 and Ag+1 complexes and octahedral geometrical Ni+2 complexes. The ligand and its metal complex showed good activity against different types of bacteria.
