Biological Importance of Coordination Compounds
TM(Transition Metals) have many oxidation states: Good for e- Transfer
TM Often Bound to a cage-like Molecule (Poly dentate Ligands)
E.g. Porphyrin Ligand: Tetradentate Square Planar 4N (Nitrogens)
Fe Bound to Porphyrin Ligand ---> Heme Complex
That's a direct copy and paste from my notes of the biological significance of the Compounds.
Another direct rip.
Ci Next to each other | Ci Opposite of each other matters, it has tremendous biological significance because it was one of the very first chemotheropeutic drugs
Forms a coordination compound with DNA: stops cell division.
Last portion. Hope it helps.
Oxygen is absorbed or de-absorbed depending on the local partial pressure of oxygen.
Hemoglobin has 4 Myoglobin-like Molecules: Binds 4 O2 Transport of O2 in blood
NOTE: Most common shape for Transition Metal Compounds is OCTAhedral. 6 Ligand
