Complexes of zinc and uranyl ions with L-hydroxyproline (LHP) have been investigated by polarographic method of analysis at 25±1 and 35±1 °C. At pH 4.5, formation of uranyl-LHP complex was observed with metal to ligand ratio of 1: 1 in aqueous and aqueous-methanolic solutions. The stability constant for the complex species is logKc=1.50, 1.30, 1.61, 1.87 in aqueous (25 °C), aqueous (35 °C), aqueous-methanolic (10% v/v) and aqueous-methanolic (50% v/v) media respectively. Between pH 3.0–12.0, zinc–LHP complex has been observed to be reduced irreversibly at DME. Detailed investigations have been reported on the system at 25±1 °C and 35±1 °C at pH 10.0 in varying concentrations of the ligand. Kinetic parameters—the formal rate constant Kf,h° and transfer coefficient α have been calculated.
