Abstract

The temperature-jump technique has been applied to the study of the complexation reactions of nickel(II) and cobalt(II) with the ligands α-alanine, β-alanine, iminodiacetic acid, aspartic acid and iminodipropionic acid and of copper(II) with the latter three ligands. These results, when considered with those in the literature for copper(II) and the alaninates, lead us to conclude that the Sterically Controlled Mechanism which has been shown to apply to the chelate formation of bidentate ligands forming six-membered rings, applies to tridentate ligands as well. The effect is pronounced when the ligand forms chelate rings all of which are greater than five-membered. © 1972.
