Stabilization of a Zn(II) hydrosulfido complex utilizing a hydrogen-bond accepting ligand

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has gained recent attention as an important biological analyte that interacts with bioinorganic targets. Despite this importance, stable H2S or HS adducts of bioinorganic metal complexes remain rare due to the redox activity of sulfide and its propensity to form insoluble metal sulfides. We report here reversible coordination of HS to Zn(didpa)Cl2, which is enabled by an intramolecular hydrogen bond between the zinc hydrosulfido product and the pendant tertiary amine of the didpa ligand.
