hemozoin has been solved by X-ray powder diffraction in the last years and its synthetic analogue, β-hematin was synthesized [2]. The ferriprotoporphyrin IX is believed to be a target for commonly used antimalarial drugs but their interactions are still not understood on In presented work we are especially interested in drug-induced perturbations of the structures of soluble β- hematin-like compound, iron(III) (meso-porphyrin-IX anhydride) called meso-hematin. Similarly to its insoluble parent compound, β-hematin, this compound is also built of dimers. The XAS measurements on frozen sample of meso-hematin in solution were performed at ESRF (station ID26). Pure acetic acid and acetic acid Figure 1.

The high resolution XANES and EXAFS spectra on iron K-edge enabled us to reveal the evolution of iron oxidation state and local environment of Fe atoms in investigated solutions upon chloroquine drug addition. The main difference revealed by EXAFS concerns the coordination number of the ligand oxygen, which is lower in the presence of chloroquine for both the water containing solutions. On the other hand the Fe-O distance is significantly shorter in solution with smaller H2O/acetic acid ratio and at the presence of drug. Analysis of the XANES revealed small changes in local iron geometry and its spin state, being close to S = 3/2, instead of S = 5/2 observed in natural product of malaria Figure 2.
