Abstract: The binding ability of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) with chromium in its different oxidation states has been investigated. The complexation of PVP towards Cr(III) and Cr(VI) labeled with <sup>51</sup>Cr radionuclide has been studied with the dialysis technique. The stability of the complexes has been examined by measuring the dynamic dissociation constant from the slope of the plot of ln{Cr(VI)/(III)-PVP} versus time. It has been observed that both Cr(VI)-PVP and Cr(III)-PVP complexes are most stable at <i>p</i>H 7. However, the Cr(III)-PVP complex is more stable than the Cr(VI)-PVP complex at all <i>p</i>H values. This study shows the comparative stability of the complexes of the two different species of chromium with PVP, which may be useful in radiopharmaceutical sciences.
