Summary, in English

Speciation and equilibria in the H+-Cd2+-N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine (PMG, H3L) system have been studied in 0.1 M Na(Cl) medium at 25.0 degreesC. Formation constants for a series of mononuclear complexes, CdHL, CdL-, CdL24- and CdL(OH)(2)- were determined from potentiometric titrations. The structures of the predominating species CdL-, and CdL24- in solution were investigated using EXAFS and IR spectroscopic techniques. In the 1:1 complex bonds are formed between the Cd(II) ion and all three donor groups (amino, carboxylate, phosphonate) of the PMG molecule resulting in two 5-membered chelate rings. At the remaining three of the corners of the distorted Cd(II) octahedra oxygens were found which are replaced by donor groups of a second PMG molecule in the 1:2 complex. Furthermore, a solid phase consisting of Cd-9(PMG)(6)(H2O)(12) (.) 6H(2)O crystals was synthesized and the crystal structure was determined. The structure consists of six CdL- octahedra connected through a seventh Cd-O octahedron in the centre of the entity, with two additional Cd-O octahedra located at the apices of the unit formed.
