Resumen:
VIBRATIONAL SPECTRA OF THREE MALTOLATO COMPLEXES WITH INTERESTING PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES   Enrique J. Baran & Beatriz S. Parajón-Costa   Centro de Química Inorgánica (CEQUINOR, CONICET/UNLP), Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Universidad Nacional de La Plata, C. Correo 962, 1900-La Plata, Argentina. (E-mail: baran@quimica.unlp.edu.ar)        Maltol, 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-4-pyrone is one of several hydroxypyrones long known for high bioavailability and favourable toxicity profiles. It has a high affinity for different metal cations and is, therefore, an excellent choice for the formulation of therapeutic and/or diagnostic metallopharmaceuticals 1.      We have prepared three metallic complexes of this ligand, namely with VO2+, Zn(II), and Ga(III) respectively. The first two show insulino mimetic activity 1-3 and the other one is a very promising antitumoral drug 4.      The FTIR and Raman spectra of polycrystalline samples of the three complexes were recorded and briefly discussed on the basis of their crystal structures and by comparison with the spectroscopic behavior of free maltol and of other, previously investigated, maltolato complexes. ___________________________     1 Thompson, K.H.; Barta, Ch.A.; Orvig, Ch.
