Mixed ligand complexes of cadmium(II) involving nitrilotriacetic acid

  • Mohamed M Shoukry
Inorganic and Analytical


Formation and equilibria of mixed ligand cadmium(II) complexes involving nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) and other ligands (L) have been investigated. Results of pH-titration measurements have shown the formation of 1∶1∶1 mixed ligand complexes. Equilibrium constants of the complexes formed have been calculated. The mode of chelation has been deduced.
