Thus, Ni(2) coordinates to KCX via its oxygen Ox2, His 133, and His 135 via their nitrogens NE2, Asp 345 via OD1, and HAE via O1. Ni(1) is coordinated to His 245 via its nitrogen ND1, His 271 via its nitrogen NE2, KCX via Ox1, and HAE via O2. 0. 699 Å as a result of the hydroxamate bridging. 2. Contrary to expectations, the bridging OH group is positively charged and cannot behave as a nucleophile, as envisaged by most proposed reaction mechanisms for urease action. In fact, it is the free oxygen of the aspartate residue that has the maximum negative charge, and which probably behaves as a nucleophile to extract a proton from urea, causing it to decompose to ammonia and a bound cyanate (Barrios and Lippard 2000).

7) show that the ligand orbitals are retained in the HOMO of the complexes, but, in the case of Ni(II), the metal d orbital also becomes a part of the HOMO, showing an interaction between the Ni(II) d orbitals and the ligand. There is no participation of the metal orbitals for the Zn(II) complex. The authors (Kakkar et al. 2006b) applied the knowledge gained about coordination bonding to investigate the metalloprotein urease and its inhibition by AHA. ) represent one of the fundamental aspects exploited by living organisms in performing their essential tasks.

3 Arylhydroxamic Acids Aromatic hydroxamic acids have also been extensively studied. García et al. (2005) carried out a theoretical and experimental study on the conformations, protonation sites, and metal complexation of benzohydroxamic acid (BHA). Their calculations at the RHF/cc-pVDZ level, refined by the B3LYP/AUG-cc-pVDZ method, indicated that, in the gas phase, 1Z is the most stable structure of both neutral and deprotonated BHA. In acetone solution at -80 °C, the E/Z ratio was estimated as 3.
