X-ray crystallography, inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy, electrospray mass spectroscopy, and combustion elemental analysis were used to determine the content and structure of copper and zinc bis-glycinate crystals. Crystals were grown from copper sulfate-glycine and zinc hydroxide-glycine solutions. The crystal structures were then resolved by X-ray crystallography, and data from electrospray mass spectroscopy along with elemental analyses are used to support the crystal structure. The…

Synthesis, characterization, and antibacterial activities of two new copper(II) glycinate complexes incorporating 2-(4′-thiazolyl)benzimidazole/2-(2-pyridyl)benzimidazole
Two new complexes, [Cu(TBZ)(Gly)(H2O)]Cl (1) and [Cu(HPB)(Gly)Cl] · 2H2O (2) (TBZ = 2-(4′-thiazolyl)benzimidazole, HPB = 2-(2-pyridyl)benzimidazole, and Gly = glycinate), have been synthesized and
Non-proteinaceous hydrolase comprised of a phenylalanine metallo-supramolecular amyloid-like structure
Evidence is presented for the ability of a single amino acid to self-assemble into a potent and stable catalytic structural entity showing catalytic properties similar to those of the natural enzyme carbonic anhydrase.
Compounds of Amino Acids as Anions
This chapter deals with salts formed from metal cations and amino acid anions. All amino acids can act as monovalent anion; the acidic members glutamic acid and aspartic acid as well as cysteine and
Elastic and hydrostatic behaviour of a zinc dietary supplement, zinc glycinate hydrate
The DFT calculated elastic moduli indicate a significant elastic anisotropy of ZnG as expected for a layered system, and the directional dependent elastic modulus can be corroborated with the underlying atomic structure.
Mechanical study of a copper dietary supplement, copper glycinate hydrate
Dietary supplementation is prevalent in our daily life, in which tablet form plays an important role due to its long-term stability and cost-effectiveness. In the pharmaceutical industry,


Polymorphism and Phase Transitions in Bis(glycinato)copper(II). A Powder Diffraction Study
Powder diffraction methods have been used to establish the structures of four known polymorphs of bis(glycinato)copper(II). The two cis-modifications are orthorhombic, and the two trans-complexes are
Relative effectiveness of iron bis-glycinate chelate (Ferrochel) and ferrous sulfate in the control of iron deficiency in pregnant women.
It is concluded that daily supplementation with Ferrochel was significantly more effective, in spite of the lower dose, than supplementation with ferrous sulfate.
Vitamine--vitamin. The early years of discovery.
The factor that prevented scurvy was isolated in 1928 and known as "water-soluble C," it was renamed ascorbic acid.
The Roles of Amino Acid Chelates in Animal Nutrition
The latest research results on the roles of amino acid chelates in animal nutrition are covered in this book, with careful attention to scientific detail and accuracy. The book presents the work of
Supplemental Foliar Potassium Applications during Muskmelon Fruit Development Can Improve Fruit Quality, Ascorbic Acid, and Beta-carotene Contents
A BSTRACT . Muskmelon [ Cucumis melo L. (Reticulatus Group)] fruit sugar content is directly related to potassium (K)- mediated phloem transport of sucrose into the fruit. However, during fruit
