l- 13C glycine was studied in nickel(II) solutions using carbon magnetic resonance (CMR). The carboxy bound nickel(II)-glycine complex and the kinetics of complexation between aquated nickel(II) ion and aquated glycine are described. It has been hypothesized that solutions containing no complexation higher than the chelated mono nickel(II)-glycine complex contain five magnetically different glycine species. The effects of these five magnetically different glycine species on the CMR spectra of the nickel(II)-glycine solutions are discussed.
