Cyanocobalamin (B(12)) offers a biocompatible scaffold for CO-releasing 17-electron dicarbonyl complexes based on the cis-trans-[Re(II)(CO)(2)Br(2)](0) core. A Co-C≡N-Re conjugate is produced in a short time and high yield from the reaction of [Et(4)N](2)[Re(II)Br(4)(CO)(2)] (ReCORM-1) with B(12). The B(12)-Re(II)(CO)(2) derivatives show a number of features which make them pharmaceutically acceptable CO-releasing molecules (CORMs). These cobalamin conjugates are characterized by an improved stability in aqueous aerobic media over the metal complex alone, and afford effective therapeutic protection against ischemia-reperfusion injury in cultured cardiomyocytes. The non-toxicity (at μM concentrations) of the resulting metal fragment after CO release is attributed to the oxidation of the metal and formation in solution of the ReO(4)(-) anion, which is among the least toxic of all of the rare inorganic compounds. Theoretical and experimental studies aimed at elucidating the aqueous chemistry of ReCORM-1 are also described.
