Abstract: Interaction of the gelatin with Cu2+ and Fe3+ are investiged at different pH and temperatures by fluorescence quenching method. The mechanisms of fluorescence quenching of Cu2+ and Fe3+ to gelatin are studied at different pH. The quenching constants, binding constants, and the thermodynamic functions are calculated. The results of microIR and UV show that Cu2+ and Fe3+ interacte with the amido bond in the gelatin molecule. The entropy change is a main factor in the interaction process of the gelatin with Cu2+ and Fe3+.

Key words: Gelatin, Influence of metal ions, Fluorescence quenching, Chelates gelatin with Cu2+ and Fe3+
