In this investigation two new ruthenium(II) complexes containing dppm and the quinaldate and kynurenate
anions with formula cis-[Ru(quin)[(dppm).sub.2]]P[F.sub.6] and cis-[Ru(kynu)[(dppm).sub.2]]P[F.sub.6] were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis and spectroscopic methods.

Inhibitors of kynurenrie hydroxylase and kynureniase increase cerebral formation of kynurenate
and have sedative and anti-convulsant activities.
As in vertebrates, this synaptic potential is a glutamatergic AMPA-like response, as it is blocked by CNQX and kynurenate
(Hochner et al., 2003).
Other phytochemical compounds include kynurenates
, citric, malic and oxalic acid , saponins, crystals of calcium oxalate, and trace minerals.
