Cyclen-Zn2+ and Cyclam-Zn2+ have similar zinc binding constants, but have different Zn2+ coordination environments due to varying pKa values of 8.02 and 9.77 respectively.x The difference between the two conformers is the staggering of the hydrogen atoms around the metal center shown in Figure 4. Through experiments, specifically pH trials, it is seen that the cyclen isomer has a higher rate of CO2 hydration at a lower pH. It is observed that the cyclam isomer does hydrolyze CO2 at a slower rate, just not as effective...
