Figure 1S reveals the fact that the neutral ligands adopted only the coordination (O2, O3). In the whole, Table 1S-3S display the fact that the impact of the substitution on the geometrical parameters of deprotonated ADPHT ligand-metal complexes is almost minor for divalent metal cation. The highest M-O2 bond distance obtained for 8A complex is due to the monodental preference of Cu+ cation. Higher X-H bond distances observed (Figure 2S) for C1-H1 revealed that these bonds are more labile in gas phase. This fact is not affected by the solvation (Figure 3S). The analysis of LUMO-HOMO gap values (Table 4S) reveals that the neutral ligands are more stable than their deprotonated homologues. The NBO analysis exhibits the fact that the metal chelation highly reduces the interaction between atoms around the metal cation and the adjacent bonds (Table 5S). In the same vein, it is important to underlined that this chelation also decreases the proton affinity and proton affinity free energy. This indicates the enhancement of the antioxidant capacity by this chelation.
