TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Dioxygen reactivity of copper(I)/manganese(II)-porphyrin assemblies: Mechanistic studies and cooperative activation of O2 2022 49 The oxidation of transition metals such as manganese and copper by dioxygen (O2) is of great interest to chemists and biochemists for fundamental and practical reasons. In this report, the O2 reactivities of 1:1 and 1:2 mixtures of [(TPP)MnII] (1; TP...
(Hydr)oxo-bridged heme complexes: From structure to reactivity 2019 106 Iron–porphyrins (i.e., hemes) are present throughout the biosphere and perform a wide range of functions, particularly those that involve complex multiple-electron redox processes. Some common heme enzymes involved in these processes include cytochro...
Insights into the chemical diversity of selected fungi from the Tza Itzá cenote of the Yucatan peninsula 2022 119 Cenotes are habitats with unique physical, chemical, and biological features. Unexplored microorganisms from these sinkholes represent a potential source of bioactive molecules. Thus, a series of cultivable fungi (Aspergillus spp. NCA257, NCA264, and...
Nitric oxide generation from heme/copper assembly mediated nitrite reductase activity 2014 67 Nitric oxide (NO) as a cellular signaling molecule and vasodilator regulates a range of physiological and pathological processes. Nitrite (NO2 -) is recycled in vivo to generate nitric oxide, particularly in physiologic hypoxia and ischemia. The cyto...
Structural diversity of Perylenequinones is driven by their redox behavior 2022 233 Hypocrellins and hypomycins are two subclasses of fungal perylenequinones with unique structural, biological, and photochemical properties. With the growing interest in these naturally occurring photosensitizers, more studies were warranted to better...
Synthetic, spectroscopic, structural, and electrochemical investigations of ferricenium derivatives with weakly coordinating anions: ion pairing, substituent, and solvent effects 2021 49 A facile and effective strategy for the preparation of a series of ferricenium complexes bearing either electron-donating or electron-withdrawing substituents with weakly coordinating anions such as [B(C6F5)4]- or SbF6- is reported. These systems wer...
