Introduction: The transition metal ions inevitably exist as metal complexes in biological systems by interaction with the numerous molecules possessing groupings capable of complexation or chelation. Hence we h d essential metals such as Cu, Zn, Cr, Fe, Mn, and Co existing as binary and ternary chelates of amino acids, carboxylic acids, and proteins. Without snch interactions, life could not exist or be maintained, or, as earlier expressed, Life could not exist or even come into being without the mediating action of metals (1) . Wood (2) made the cogent point when he wrote: . . . metals are involved in every aspect of biosynthesis, biodegradation, and in the assembly of macromolecular structure. If you think that biochemistry is the organic chemistry of living systems, then you are misled: biochemistry is the coordination cherristry of living systems.?
