Chemical speciation of L-glutamic: acid complexes of Some toxic metal ions has been investigated pH-metrically In DMSO-water mixtures (0-60% v/v) at 303 K and ionic: strength of 0.16 mol L-1. The predominant species detected for PbII and CdII are ML2H4, ML2H3, ML2H2, ML2 and ML and for HgII are ML2H4, ML2H3, ML2H2 and ML. The trend!! in variation of stability constants of the complexes with dielectric: constant of the medium are attributed to the electrostatic: and non-electrostatic: forces.
