Complexation of Co(II) and Cu(II) with L-2-Amino 4-methyl mercaptobutanoic acid: A Kinetic Study
Methionine is a sulphur containing essential amino acid and cannot be synthesised in living beings. In deficiency state of methionine, the formation of creatinine would be reduced giving a false impression of depressed kidney function. Therefore, a comprehensive kinetic study was carried out to study its interaction with metal ions Co (II) and Cu(II). Rate constants corresponding to the binding steps, outer sphere complex formation reaction (Kos), rate constant of water exchange (ko) were computed. The proposed mechanism is supported by the computation of activation parameters corresponding to stepwise rate constants.
