In this paper, feather keratin (FK) and glycine (Gly) firstly were combined to generate FK-Gly in an aqueous solution, then the transition metal ions ([Zn.sup.II], [Cu.sup.II], [Mn.sup.II], and [N.sup.II]) were combined with FK-Gly to generate keratin-based biopolymer metal complexes (FK-GlyM, M = Zn, Cu, Mn, Ni) and further studied its property of scavenging [O.sub.2.sup.*-] and seriously explored its mechanism.
