Metal-ion affinity (formation) constants were determined for two "Good's" buffers, N-tris(hydroxymethyl)methyl-2-aminoethanesulfonic acid (TES) and N,N-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)glycine (bicine). The metal chelates formed undergo loss of an internal ligand (alcohol) proton (bicine) and undergo hydrolysis (bicine and TES) and dimerization reactions (TES). Bicine...

The nature and rate of reduction of Hg2+ to Hg0 by 1,5-dihydro-3,(3-sulfopropyl)lumiflavin (FIH2) in buffered aqueous solutions (pH 4.7) is dependent on the ligation of Hg2+. In the presence of N,N-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)glycine or when ligated to ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, the reduction is...

This study was designed to investigate the effects of a modified University of Wisconsin (UW) solution supplemented with one of four buffering agents (histidine, bicine [N,N-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)glycine], tricine [N-tris(hydroxymethyl)methylglycine], and Tris) on liver metabolism during cold ischemic storage. Rat livers were...

The impact of ligand protonation on the complexation kinetics of higher-order complexes is quantitatively described. The theory is formulated on the basis of the usual situation for metal complex formation in aqueous systems in which the exchange of water for...
