A variety of copper(lI) complexes with di-, tri- and tetra-peptides containing only glycine residues (GG, GGG and GGGG) and others containing a histidyl residue in different positions (HGG, GHG, GGH and GGHG) have been investigated. EPR parameters obtained by extensive use of computer simulation of spectra lead to reliable spin Hamiltonian EPR parameters at both room temperature and in frozen solution. The molecular orbital coefficients computed from the anisotropic EPR data and the d-d electronic energies are used to characterize different arrangements of the complexes. Estimation of the scavenger activity of the complexes due to the particular environment created by the ligands around copper is discussed in the frame of the structure-activity relationship.
