Abstract Metal complexes of general formula Na2M(CAP)2xH2O (with M = Cd(II) or Ni(II), x = 7 and 4, respectively, CAP = 1-(D-3-mercapto-2-methylpropionyl)-L-proline) and NaCuCAPx3H2O have been synthesized as amorphous compounds and studied by means of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Cu(I) derivative has been studied by IR, XPS and large-angle X-ray scattering (LAXS). IR data and the chemical shift of core level signals suggest that CAP is bonded to the metal via the sulphur atom and the carbonylic oxygen. LAXS data confirm this finding and are consistent with a tetrahedral configuration around the copper ion. The CAP molecule is bonded through the sulphur and the carbonylic oxygen and two water molecules complete the coordination around the metal. The sodium ion exhibits a tetrahedral configuration and interacts with the carboxylic group and two water molecules. One of these is bridging bonded between copper and sodium. No metal-nitrogen bonds are present.
