Abstract

Formation constants for the iron(III) complexes of the orally effective iron chelator pyridoxal isonicotinoyl hydrazone (PIH) and three analogues: pyridoxal benzoyl hydrazone (PBH), 3-hydroxy- isonicotinaldehyde isonicotinoyl hydrazone (IIH) and salicylaldehyde isonicotinoyl hydrazone (SIH), have been determined by a combination of spectrophotometry and potentiometry. All four ligands bind iron(III) strongly giving, at physiological pH 7.4, values of pM (−log[uncomplexed metal]) between 27.7 and 50, comparable to or greater than those for transferrin (25.6) and desferrioxamine B (28.6). The complexation of Fe(II) by PIH has also been studied and has been found to be appreciable but very much weaker than that for Fe(III).
