Complexation in M (II) – Rut systems (M(II) = Co, Cu) was studied by electron absorption spectroscopy and pH-metric titration in water-ethanol solutions depending on the metal: ligand ratio (1: 1; 2: 1) and the pH of the medium. It was shown that the structure and stoichiometric composition of the complexation reaction products are influenced by such basic parameters as L:M and the pH value of the medium. Depending on the pH value,  chelation involves certain binding sites, which primarily is associated with the redistribution of the electron density in the flavonoid molecule. In a weakly acidic or neutral medium, regardless of the M(II): Rut ratio, the formation of monoligand complexes of rutin with 3-d metals occurs with the participation of 5-OH and 4-C=O fragments of the A and C rings, and in an alkaline medium, chelation proceeds on the catecholic fragment of  ring B rutin. Biligand complexes are formed with the participation of the gydroxo groups of the catechol fragment of each rutin molecule, and the formation of compounds with a ratio of 2:1 occurs both due to 5-OH and 4C=O and due to 3 ', 4'-OH groups. The calculated values of the stability constants of the complexes showed that the stability of the Co (II) complexes is several orders of magnitude lower than the stability of the corresponding Cu (II) complexes.
