Abstract

In this study zinc compounds containing coordination spheres similar to those in zinc metalloenzymes were identified as targets for potential investigation by ssNMR. The title compounds, zinc catena-(tetrakis(µ2-Benzoato-O,O’))-di-zinc(II), diaquabis(salicylato) zinc, Zn2PSAP(OAc)2, cis-diaqua-diglycolatozinc (II), hexaaquazinc(II)p-hydroxybenzoate dihydrate, and catena-((µ-3-nitrobenzoato) (µ-3-nitrobenzoic acid)sodium) were synthesized, crystallized and their structures solved using single crystal Xray diffraction
