Equilibrium constants for the binding of beryllium(II) to the nucleotides: adenosine 5′–monophosphate, -diphosphate, and -triphosphate have been determined. The species formed are [BeL]( z −2)−, [Be(HL)]( z −3)−, [Be2(OH)L2](2z−3)− and [Be3(OH)3(HL)3](3z−6)−, where L z − represents the fully deprotonated nucleotide. When the complex contains a protonated ligand, the protonation site is an adenosine nitrogen. Formation of these complexes is unlikely to interfere, under physiological conditions… 
Complex formation reactions between [Pd(piperazine)(H2O)2]2+ and biorelevant ligands: synthesis and equilibrium constants
[Pd(pip)Cl2], [Pd(pip)(cbdca)] ⋅ 2H2O, and [Pd(pip)(malonate)] ⋅ 2H2O complexes were synthesized and characterized, where pip is piperazine and cbdca is cyclobutanedicarboxylate. The stoichiometry
Analysis of beryllium to biomolecule binding using a metal specific fluorescent probe and competitive assay.

Methylenediphosphonotetrathioate: synthesis, characterization, and chemical properties.
MDPT was found to be a water-soluble chelator showing a clear preference to soft/borderline metal-ions and a remarkable selectivity to those metal-ion vs Ca(II) ions.
Spectroscopic and potentiometric studies of the interaction of adenine with trivalent metal ions
Potentiometric titration was used to determine the potentiometric diagrams of complexes of adenine with Al3+, Cr3+, and Fe3+. IR and Raman spectra of solids show that the interaction of adenine with

Nucleoside 5'-triphosphates: self-association, acid-base, and metal ion-binding properties in solution.
The coordination chemistry of NTPs is critically reviewed and the conditions are defined for studies aiming to describe the properties of monomeric complexes because at higher concentrations (>1 mM) self-stacking may take place.
