Electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ES-MS) has been used to probe the coordination chemistry of metabolites such as sporidesmin D (spdD), found in the saprophytic fungus Pithomyces chartarum, and the related bisdethiobis(methylthio)gliotoxin (dimethylgliotoxin, Megtx). SpdD forms complexes of the type [spdD+M(MeCN)]+ and [2spdD+M]+ (M=Cu, Ag) and, at higher cone voltages, [spdD+M]+. The bis(ligand) ion [2spdD+M]+ was observed at very high cone voltages, indicating it has appreciable stability; the proposed structure of this species has a four-coordinate metal ion with two bidentate spdD ligands, coordinated through their SMe groups. 1H NMR titrations of spdD with K+, Ag+ and Cu+ provided additional evidence for complex formation with the soft metals. SpdD forms only relatively weak complexes with Zn2+, Cd2+, Co2+ and Mn2+, in ke...
