A six membered nitrogenous heterocyclic ketone 3-methyl-2,6-diphenylpiperidin-4-one, its oxime namely 3-methyl-2,6-diphenylpiperidin-4-oneoxime and copper(II) complex of this oxime was prepared by literature procedure. The purities of these ketone, oxime and copper complex was analyzed by physico-chemical and spectroscopic methods reported in the literature. The physicochemical analysis results confirmed that the structure of the complex was distorted octahedral. The antimicrobial activities of these substrates such as ketone, oxime and its copper complex were investigated using Bauer-Kirby disc diffusion technique against several antimicrobes by measuring the mm of zones of inhibitions. Further these activities were concluded using drug dilution method. From the analysis report, the copper (II) complex of the oxime shows significant antimicrobial activities against their antimicrobial stains. The oxime shows moderate antimicrobial activity. The ketone shows satisfactory antibacterial and antifungal activities against their stains in both disc diffusion and drug dilution methods.
