Abstract

A novel racemization observed in the Vitamin B6-amino acid Schiff base complexes, aquo (5'-phosphopyridoxylidene-l-tyrosinato) copper(II) and aquo (5'-phosphopyridoxylidene-l-phenylalaninato) copper(II) is described. The racemization taking place in solution under mild acidic conditions (pH 5-6) was confirmed by CD studies and the products were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The structures of both complexes show almost parallel orientation of the aromatic side chain and the pyridoxal II-system. The activation of the αCsingle bondH group due to the intermolecular II- interaction is probably the reason for the unusual racemization observed.
