Water-soluble titanocene complexes with sulfur-containing aminoacids: synthesis, spectroscopic, electrochemical and Ti(IV)–transferrin interaction studies


Three new water soluble titanocene–aminoacid complexes have been synthesized via the reaction of Cp2TiCl2 and two equivalents of aminoacid (L) in methanol, affording [Cp2TiL2]Cl2, L=L-cysteine (2), D-penicillamine (3) and L-methionine (4). These complexes have been characterized by 1H, IR and UV-Vis spectroscopies, elemental analysis and cyclic voltammetry… (More)
