1H and 13C NMR studies of Zn(II) binding to oxidized glutathione (GSSG) in aqueous solution over the pH range 4-11 show that it forms a complex with a 1:1 Zn:GSSG stoichiometry. At pH values between 6 and 11 the metal ligands are the COO- and NH2 groups of the glutamate residues. Below pH 5 the glycine end of the molecule also binds to the metal ions. EPR(More)
Using dynamic liquid-state 'H NMR and solid-state 15N CPMAS NMR spectroscopy (CP cross polarization, MAS = magic angle spinning), the intramolecular double-proton transfer (tautomerism) of I5N-labeled porphyrin has been studied. Rate constants including kinetic HH/HD/DD isotope effects were obtained as a function of temperature not only for the liquid phase(More)
Two Sn(IV) corroles were synthesized and electrochemically examined. The investigated compounds are represented as (OEC)Sn(C(6)H(5)) and (OEC)SnCl, where OEC = trianion of 2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octaethylcorrole. (OEC)Sn(C(6)H(5)) represents the first example of a sigma-bonded metallocorrole which does not undergo a metal-centered electrode reaction. Both(More)
The synthesis, spectroscopic characterization, and electrochemistry of As, Sb, and Bi corroles are reported. The investigated complexes are represented by [(OEC)AsV(CH3)]+ClO4- and (OEC)M where M = As(III), Sb(III), or Bi(III) and OEC is the trianion of octaethylcorrole. The products of each redox reaction are characterized by UV-vis and ESR spectroscopy.(More)
In the present work the effect of spiroconjugation on the electronic spectrum of the recently synthesized metal complex hexadecaethylspirodicorrolato-dinickel(II) (5) (the corrole units in 5 are isoforms) is investigated. To have a suitable reference compound at our disposal, tetraethylhexamethylisocorrolato nickel(II) (7) has been prepared. On comparing(More)
Porphyrin (P), porphycene (Pc), corrphycene (Cn), and hemiporphycene (Hpc) represent a series of well defined "4-N in" constitutional porphyrin isomers. These isomers, in the form of their octaethyl derivatives, represent a congruent set of porphyrinoids whose properties can be compared. In this study we report how variations in electronic structure and(More)
Five-coordinate iron(III) 2,7,12,17-tetrapropylporphycene (TPrPc)Fe(III)X (X = C(6)H(5)O(-), Cl(-), Br(-), I(-), ClO(4)(-)) complexes have been investigated. The (1)H NMR spectra demonstrate downfield shifts for pyrrole resonances [(TPrPc)Fe(III)(C(6)H(5)O), 65.3 ppm; (TPrPc)Fe(III)Cl, 28.5 ppm] but large upfield ones for (TPrPc)Fe(III)Br (-7.8 ppm),(More)
The first synthesis and characterization of sigma-bonded and N-substituted cobalt porphycenes is reported. The investigated compounds are represented as (Pc)Co(R) and (N-CH(3)OEPc)CoCl, where R is CH(3) or C(6)H(5), Pc is the dianion of 2,3,6,7,12,13,16,17-octaethylporphycene (OEPc), 2,7,12,17-tetrapropylporphycene (TPrPc), or(More)
