Rac.-p-(tris(2-aminoethyl)amine-2-(nitromethyl)ornithine)cobalt(III) trichloride (2d) was obtained by a simple three-step procedure from ornithine using cobalt template chemistry. p-(Tris(2-aminoethyl)amine-ornithine)cobalt(III) trichloride (2a) was obtained from tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (tren) and (S)-ornithine in the presence of cobalt(II), which was oxidised to cobalt(III) during the reaction. Complex 2a was selectively oxidised with thionyl chloride-dimethyl formamide to...[Show more]
