Abstract

Metal complexes of amino polycarboxylic acid ligands have been studied using density functional methods and a continuum solvation model (COSMO). Complexation energies for complexes of Mg2+, Ca2+, Mn2+, Fe3+, and Zn2+ have been determined. The studied ligands include ethylenediaminedi-(o-hydroxyphenylacetic)acid (EDDHA) (including its ortho,ortho, ortho,para, and para,para-isomers), N,N′-bis(2-hydroxybenzyl)ethylenediamine-N,N′-diacetic acid (HBED), ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), ethylenediiminodibutanedioic acid (EDDS), meso-oxybis(butanedioic acid) (ODS), and 2,2′-bis(carboxymethyl)iminodiacetic acid (ISA). New, more accurate parameterisation is introduced to correct the neglected contributions in energetics. For o,o-EDDHA, the method is tested also for partly deprotonated forms of ligand. The results indicate that o,o-EDDHA4- and HBED4- are clearly the most effective ligands for all the metals.
