1082 - Examination of dipicolinic acid scaffolds containing cis-cyclopenta-1,3-dial under aquatic conditions

Nepherteria Wright,, Stephen Tajc. NAZARETH COLLEGE, ROCHESTER, New York 14618, United States

Typically dipicolinic acid (DPA) is noted for its association with calcium in spores. It has also been reported to associate as a bidentate ligand with iron, copper, and cobalt. Previous studies had shown the association between derivatives of DPA scaffolds and zinc. We are exploring DPA binding potential with scaffolds during aquatic mono-assocation. We have begun investigation towards bridging two DPA molecule with cis-cyclopenta-1,3-dial. It has been hypothesized that the cup-shaped DPA molecule will chelate well with the cation in water.
