The sulfur atom, the nitrogen atom of the deprotonated amide functionality, and an oxygen atom of the carboxylate group are the ligating atoms of the dipeptide N-(2-mercaptopropionyl)glycine (H3mpg) in its complex with the VO2+ center in the anion of 1 (shown on the right). This complex salt is accessible from [VOCl2(phen)] (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) and H3mpg in the presence of Et3N. This study provides insight into the mode of binding of a dipeptide to an oxovanadium(IV) unit.
