Azomethine ligands  and their  metal chelates are flexible compounds synthesized from the condensation of an amino compound with carbonyl compounds and extensively used for industrial purposes and also show a broad range of biological efficiencies including antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antimalarial, antiproliferative, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti-HIV, anthelminthic and antipyretic properties. Azomethine metal chelates show excellent catalytic activity in diversity reactions. Over the past few years, there have been many reports on their applications in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. The high thermal and moisture stabilities of many azomethine metal chelates were useful attributes for their application as catalysts in reactions involving at high temperatures. Recent researches in oxidation catalysis have focused on how to employ the metal‐catalyzed oxidation of organic substrates. This review concerns with the current developments for the oxidations of organic compounds
