Abstract The oxovanadium(IV) complex of oxodiacetic acid (H2oda) and o-phenanthroline of stoichiometry [VO(ODA)(ophen)]×1.5H2O, which presents the interesting tridentate OOO coordination, was thoroughly characterized by infrared, Raman and electronic spectroscopies. The biological activity of the complex on the cell proliferation was tested on osteoblast-like cells (MC3T3E1 osteoblastic mouse calvaria-derived cells and UMR106 rat osteosarcoma-derived cells) in culture. The complex caused inhibition of cellular proliferation in both osteoblast cell lines in culture, but the cytotoxicity was stronger in the normal (MC3T3E1) than in the tumoral (UMR106) osteoblasts.
