Textbook Problem

BAL is a chelating agent used in treating heavy metal poisoning. It acts as a bidentate ligand. What type of linkage isomers are possible when BAL coordinates to a metal ion?

Chapter 21, Problem 44E, BAL is a chelating agent used in treating heavy metal poisoning. It acts as a bidentate ligand. What

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: It is given that, BAL is a chelating agent that is used in treating heavy metal poisoning. The types of linkage isomers possible when BAL coordinates to a metal ion are to be stated.

Concept introduction: The structures that have the same composition of complex ions, but differ in the attachment of metal to the ligands are known as linkage isomers.

To determine: The possible type of linkage isomers when BAL coordinates to a metal ion.

Explanation

Explanation

BAL is a chelating agent that is used in treating heavy metal poisoning.

The given structure of BAL is,

Figure 1

Coordination of metal ion with BAL is possible in three ways

  • Coordination of metal ion with the OH and the middle SH .
  • Coordination of metal ion with the terminal SH and the OH .
  • Coordination of metal ion with two S atoms of the SH .

The linkage isomer in the coordination of metal ion with two S atoms of the SH is,
