1 Synthesis and Characterization of bis(2-hydroxyethyl)dithiocarbamate complexes of Zinc, Mercury, Uranium, Lead, Chromium, and Calcium Gregory Trzcinski Department of Chemistry McDaniel College February 27, 2009

2 Overview Introduction –Why this ligand? –Why these metals? Facts on metals –What type of analyses? –The Big Nine Syntheses –Ligand Proposed Mechanism –Metal complexes Self Assembly Results/Discussion –The Big Nine Conclusion Future Work Questions?

3 Why this ligand? Increased interest –Analytical agents –Medicinal drugs Known treatment for heavy metal and organometallic cation poisoning Known metal binding capacities Potassium bis(2- hydroxyethyl)dithiocarbamate

4 Why these metals? Interested in the metals Recognized toxicity in sufficient amounts Availability –In the environment –In reagents More complete study of Zinc and Mercury started by Pages et al.

5 Calcium Essential Most abundant metal in the body Body needs a constant level –Muscle contractions Daily recommended amount ~1000mg Excess can lead to health concerns –Decreased absorption of other metals http://product-image.tradeindia.com/00063632/b/Calcium- Chloride-Anhydrous-Powder.jpg

6 Chromium Essential in trace amounts Adequate intake ~35μg Found in two forms 3 +, biologically active, and 6 +, toxic Few adverse effects http://ankomreactive.ru/kalii

7 Zinc Essential Variety of cellular functions Adequate intake ~11mg Excess can lead to health concerns –Decrease of HDL Toxicity has led to deficiencies in other essential metals http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zinc_chloride

8 Mercury Non-essential, toxic Vaporizes at ambient temperature and pressure Vaporized form can remain in the air for up to a year Deposited all over the world http://img.alibaba.com/photo/104416972/Merc uric_Chloride.summ.jpg

9 Uranium Non-essential Used in power plants Depleted uranium most common –Byproduct –Military use 90μg is present in body Increased use can be hazardous http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranyl_acetate

10 Lead Non-essential Very toxic Typically found in paint More readily absorbed by children Myriad of health concerns http://www.alibaba.com/product/chemarea-12251525- 10992269/Lead_Acetate.html

11 The Big Nine Melting Point (in Celsius) Yield (in grams) Percent Yield 1 H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy (NMR) 13 C NMR Infrared Spectroscopy (IR) Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrophotometry (UV-Vis) Mass Spectrometry (Mass Spec): Electrospray + or - Elemental Analysis

12 What to look for and accomplish? The presence of the metal in the resultant complexes Theorize a structure for each complex
