Chemical speciation of ternary complexes of L-arginine and L-aspartic acid with essential transition metal ions was studied pH metrically. The following MLX, MLXH and ML2X ternary species are detected and reported in this paper. The existence of different ternary species is established from modeling studies using the computer program MINIQUAD75. The relative concentrations (M: L: X=1:2:2, 1:2:4, 1:4:2) and stabilities of the ternary species are compared with those of binary species. The extra stability associated with the ternary complexes is attributed to factors such as charge neutralization, chelate effect, stacking interactions and hydrogen bonding. Trend in variation of stability constants with the change in the mole fraction of the surfactant in various micellar media is explained on the basis of electrostatic and non-electrostatic forces. Distribution diagrams in relation to pH and plausible structures were presented.
