Five new Cu(II) and Zn(II) heteroleptic complexes with saccharin and amino acids with general stoichiometry Na2[M(sac)2(aa)2].nH2O (M = Cu or Zn, sac = saccharinate anion, aa = aminoacid) were synthesized and characterized by elemental and thermogravimetric analysis, conductimetric measurements and IR, Raman and UV-VIS spectroscopies. In all the complexes the metal ions coordinated with the amino acids through their terminal amine and carboxylate residues and with saccharin through the heterocyclic N-atom. Besides, the superoxide dismutase-like activity of the heteroleptic copper complexes was evaluated and compared with the homoleptic copper amino acid complexes with the aim to observe the influence of the saccharin coordination.
