Both the oxidized and reduced forms of Hipip (high-potential iron--sulphur protein) are reduced (approx. 30% yields) by eaq.- in a single-stage process, rate constants 1.7 x 10(10) and 1.8 x 10(10) M-1 . s-1 respectively, at 25 degrees C, pH 7.0 (5 mM-phosphate). Super-reduced Hipip, which is formed in the latter case, has a spectrum which closely resembles(More)
The radiation chemistry of water is sufficiently well known under ambient conditions that it is widely used to study the chemistry of free radicals in aqueous solution. One topical application described here is the hydroxyl radical-driven oxidation of sulphur dioxide to sulphuric acid in cloudwater to form acid rain. Another area of current interest is the(More)
