Abstract

A series of cobalt(III) complexes of the anticancer antibiotic bleomycin has been prepared. Mass spectrometry and enzymatic analysis show that the green cobalt-bleomycinscomplex contains a hydroperoxide (-OOH) group bound to cobalt with unusual stability. Under appropriate conditions, cobalt-bleomycins containing other monodentate ligands to cobalt can be formed; fast-atom bombardment mass spectra of such complexes show peaks for cobalt-bleomycin at the expected mass, and also peaks for the intact complexes at the required higher mass.
