Full Papers


The interaction of PdII with DL-selenamethionine (SeMet) in acidic aqueous solution was investigated. SeMet was found to act as a bidentate ligand, forming a stable complex with PdII. Binding of the metal ion to the selenoether group creates a new chiral centre, which generates two sets of1H and13C n.m.r. methyl resonances for the two diastereoisomers. The2J values for (77Se−Me) decreased upon complex formation.
