Reaction between Na3H2(HXTA) and Na3Co(CO3)3 in an aqueous solution gave a binuclear cobalt(III) complex, Na2Co2(HXTRA), where in the (HXTRA)4- ligand one of the four acetate arms of the (HXTA)5- ligand is lost; H5(HXTA) denotes N,N′-(2-hydroxy-5-methyl-1,3-xylylene)bis(N-carboxymethylglycine). This may be attributed to the oxidative degradation of one acetato arm of the (HXTA)5- ligand due to a peroxide-Co(III) species.
