ABSTRACT
Many antituberculosis metal complexes have been synthesized, but most of these drugs may encourage the bacteria that causes tuberculosis to become resistant to drugs used to treat the disease when they are taken alone and when the bacteria becomes resistant, treating the disease becomes very difficult. This has led to the research of finding a way of synthesizing more active antituberculosis drugs that the bacteria will not be able to resist. So this research was carried out in order to synthesis more active antituberculosis drug.
