The reactions of tetraphenylporphine (H2TPP) with copper(II) chelates in DMSO were studied. α-Amino acids (glycine, α-alanine, valine, leucine, tyrosine, and glutamine) were used as chelating ligands. The study of the reaction kinetics showed that Cu(II) chelates with alanine and the other amino acids are less reactive in these reactions than acetylacetonates, α-nitroso-β-naphtholates, and hydroxyquinolates. The exception is a Cu(II) complex with tyrosine. The relationship between the structure of the above chelates and the rate of their reactions with porphyrin was determined.
