Abstract: The stability constants of heterobinuclear complexes formed in aqueous solution for the biologically important ligands, viz., (i) dopa, (ii) dopamine (dopm) and (iii) -histidine(his) with Cu(II)-Ni(II), Cu(II)-Zn(ll) and Ni(II)-Zn(II) and (iv) -cysteine (cys) and (v) -penicillamine(pen) with Ni(II)-Zn(lI) have been evaluated by computer based analysis of the pH titration data. The binary systems Ni(II)/Zn(II)-dopa and dopm have also been studied. The heterobinuc1ear species of the types MAM' or MA2M' have been detected with dopa, dopm, cys and pen ligands, while in the his ligand systems MA2HM', MA2M', MA2H-1M' and MA2H- 2M' mixed metal species have been found to be present. A qualitative attempt has been made on the comparison of the log b values, to study the Irving-Williams order of stabilities. The higher stabilities of mixed metal complexes over the mixed ligand system is also discussed.
