The C-terminal blocked tetrapeptides SHHK- and SAHK-, which represent the fragments produced from the hydrolysis of the hexapeptides' -TASHHK-, -TESHHK-, and -TESAHK- complexes with Ni(II), were synthesized and their interactions with Ni(II) ions were studied potentiometrically and spectroscopically. Both tetrapeptides interact strongly with Ni(II) ions leading to square-planar complexes with 4N {NH2,2N(-),N-im} coordination. The stability of the Ni-SHHK- complex is about 2 orders of magnitude higher than the Ni-SAHK- complex. Spectroscopic evidence and theoretical predictions suggest the positioning of the free imidazole ring, in the Ni-SHHK- complex, above the coordination plane, explaining the extra stability of the complex.
