The protonation constants and the successive stability constants of the copper(II) complexes of a series of amino alcohols were determined by means of potentiometric equilibrium measurements. The data reflected the effects of hydrogen-bonded chelate formation and the size of the ring formed on the protonation constants. The complex formation constants showed the effects of steric factors (cis or trans location of the donor groups, and size of the chelate ring) on the stabilities of copper(II) complexes and on the binding mode (mono- or bifunctional) of the ligands.
