New chitosan Schiff base (CS-NB) and its CS-NB-NiFe nanocomposite have been prepared and characterized by FTIR spectroscopy, XRD, SEM and DSC. FT-IR spectra and XRD patterns revealed the preparation of chitosan Schiff base CS-NB and its CS-NB-NiFe nanocomposite. DSC demonstrated the endo and exothermic correspondence the evaporation of solvent and decomposition of pyranose ring, respectively. Antibacterial activities was evaluated for the as-prepared compounds against two Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus) and two Gram-negative (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) bacteria and the results shows that the antibacterial activities of the compounds are found to be stronger than that of chitosan. The order of antibacterial effect according to inhibitory zone around is as follows: S. aureus > E. coli > B. cereus > P. aeruginosa. In addition, the removal of methyl green (MG) dye using CS-NB and its CS-NB-NiFe nanocomposite were analyzed and results showed that the compounds can be effectively used to remove of MG from aqueous solution. Results show that the percentage removal of MG by nanocomposite is higher than Schiff base. Copyright © 2021. Published by Elsevier B.V.
