      The formation constants for ternary metal complexes (MLA) where L = ethylenediaminediacetic acid (EDDA), M = Cu(II) and A = glycine, alanine, leucine, serine, threonine, methionine, proline, phenylalanine, tryptophan, histidine, aspartic acid, ethylenediamine, histamine, 2,2′-bipyridyl, 1,10-phenanthroline, imidazole, oxalic acid, malonic acid, pyrocatechol and nitropyrocatechol have been investigated by pH-metric method at 35°C andμ = 0.2 M (KNO3). With respect to the donor atoms on ligand A, the stabilities of the ternary complexes increase in the order O-O < N-O≈N-N. The stabilities of the various ternary complexes decrease with the increasing number of carboxylate groups on the ligand in the order ethylenediamine (EN) < ethylenediamine monoacetic acid (EDMA) < EDDA. Various factors influencing the formation and stabilities of ternary complexes are discussed.

      The dissociation constants for N-(l-naphthyl)ethylenediamine (NEN) and the formation constants for binary (ML) and ternary metal complexes (MLA), where M = Cu(II), L = alanine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, lysine, arginine, serine, threonine, aspartic acid or histidine and A = NEN or ethylenediamine (EN) have been determined by pH titrations and are reported at 35°C (gm = 0.2 M KNO3). The relative stability of the ternary complexes are discussed in terms of statistical effects and the nature of ligands in the coordination sphere of the metal ion.

      Interaction of adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP) with a series of binary Cu(II) complexes (ML) (where L =o-phenanthroline (Phen), 5-nitrophenanthroline (NPhen), 5-methyl phenanthroline (MPhen), 2,9-dimethylphenanthroline (DPhen), 2,9-dimethyl-4,7-diphenylphenanthroline (DPhPhen), 2,2′-bipyridyl (Bipy), bis(imidazol-2-yl) methane (BIM), oxalic acid (Ox), glycine (Gly), alanine (Ala), valine (Val), phenylalanine (Phe), tryptophan (Trp), methionine (Met), histidine (His) or aspartic acid (Asp) to form ternary complexes (MLA) was investigated by a pH-metric technique and the formation constants were evaluated at 35.0°C and μ = 0.2 M (KNO3). The influence exerted by ligand L on the binding of ATP to Cu(II) was quantitatively assessed and ATP was found to bind more strongly when L = bidentate nitrogen donors, relatively less strongly when L = amino acids and least strongly when L = a bidentate oxygen donor. With respect to the nitrogen donor ligands the stability of the ternary complexes decreases in the order NPhen > Phen > Bipy > MPhen > DPhen > BIM ≈ DPhPhen, whereas in ternary complexes containing amino acids the stability decreases in the order: Phe ≈ Trp > Ala > Gly ≈ Val ≈ Met > His > Asp. The trends in the stability of the various complexes are discussed in terms of the nature of the metal ion and the two ligands in its coordination sphere.

      Catalysts with varying WO3 content on SnO2 were prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction, in situ Raman spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and temperature programmed desorption of NH3. In situ Raman analysis reveals the presence isolated monomers and polymeric species of WO3. These catalysts were evaluated for the conversion of glycerol into value added chemicals. Etherification of glycerol with tertiary butanol and preparation of glycerol carbonate from glycerol and urea are studied over these catalysts. The catalytic activity results suggest that the glycerol conversion and selectivity depends on the morphology of WO3 which in turn is related to its content in the catalyst. The catalysts with 5 wt.% of WO3 on SnO2 resulted in high dispersion with larger number of strong acidic sites. The selectivity in the glycerol etherification is related to the nature of the catalyst and reaction time. These catalysts also exhibited high activity for synthesis of glycerol carbonate. The effect of various reaction parameters was studied to optimize the reaction conditions. The catalysts also exhibited consistent activity upon reuse.
