Vibrational and NMR spectra of bidentate EDTA complexes of palladium(ii)

Nuttall, R.H. and McConnell, A.A. (1976) Vibrational and NMR spectra of bidentate EDTA complexes of palladium(ii). Inorganica Chimica Acta, 19 (3). pp. 253-256. ISSN 0020-1693

The vibrational spectra of H4EDTAPdCl2·5H2O and its aqueous solutions indicate that EDTA acts as a bidentate ligand. NMR spectra of the D2O solutions at varying pD support the formulation of the solution species as hydrolysis products, involving aquo and hydroxy species, In which EDTA is exclusively bidentate.
