The addition of a large excess of 1,2-cyclopentanediol to a 1:1 mixture of glutathione and CrVI at pH 7.5 stabilises the intermediate CrV species formed by the one-electron reduction of CrVI by glutathione. The isotropic EPR parameters (giso and Aiso) of the CrV species formed with both cis- and trans-1,2-cyclopentanediol correspond to those calculated for five-coordinate oxo-CrV complexes with four alcoholato donors [Cr(O)(1,2-cyclopentanediolato)2]-. The five-coordinate oxo-CrV species formed with both 1,2-cyclopentanediol isomers show very similar EPR superhyperfine patterns, but differ in their stability and the conditions required for their formation due to the different chelation ability of the cis- vs. trans-1,2-diolato moiety.
