Effects of preorganization in the chelation of UO22+ by hydroxamate ligands: cyclic PIPO– vs linear NMA–

Abstract

Many siderophores incorporate as bidentate chelating subunits linear and more seldomly cyclic hydroxamate groups. In this work, a comparative study of the uranyl binding properties in aqueous solution of two monohydroxamic acids, the prototypical linear N-methylacetohydroxamic acid (NMAH) and the cyclic analog 1-hydroxypiperidine-2-one (PIPOH), has been carried out. The complex [UO2(PIPO)2(H2O)] crystallized from slightly acidic water solutions (pH < 5), and its molecular structure was determined by X-ray diffraction. The uranyl speciation in the presence of both ligands has been thoroughly investigated in 0.1 M KNO3 medium at 298.2 K by the combined use of four complementary techniques, i.e., potentiometry, spectrophotometry, Raman spectroscopy, and affinity capillary electrophoresis. Preorganization of the hydroxamate ligand for chelation by incorporation into a cyclic structure, as in PIPO–, results in gaining nearly one order of magnitude in the formation constants of the uranyl complexes of 1:1 and 1:2 metal/ligand stoichiometries.
