In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, maltose is transported by a proton symport mechanism, whereas glucose transport occurs via facilitated diffusion. The energy requirement for maltose transport was evaluated with a metabolic model based on an experimental value of YATP for growth on glucose and an ATP requirement for maltose transport of 1 mol.mol-1. The(More)
[Mn(CO)(4){S(2)CNMe(CH(2)CO(2)H)}], 1, is shown to be a CO releasing molecule providing at least three moles CO per mole of compound. The mechanism of CO loss is dissociative and reversible and was investigated using Gaussian 09 calculations. The reversible binding of CO results in a relatively stable solution of the compound, while in the presence of a CO(More)
The pharmacologically active [Ru(CO)(3)Cl(glycinate)] is shown to be in equilibrium with [Ru(CO)(2)(CO(2)H)Cl(glycinate)](-) (isomers) at around pH 3.1 which then at physiological pH reacts with more base to give [Ru(CO)(2)(CO(2))Cl(glycinate)](2-) (isomers) or [Ru(CO)(2)(CO(2)H)(OH)(glycinate)](-) (isomers). The ease with which [Ru(CO)(3)Cl(glycinate)](More)
A highly versatile route to oxazole-5-amides is presented. Conversion of readily accessible oxazole-5-trifluoroacetamides into their Boc-protected 5-aminooxazole derivatives provides intermediates amenable to parallel amide synthesis utilizing a reliable, one-pot, acylation-deprotection procedure. During preparation of the N-Boc compounds from(More)
Synthetic supramolecular zipper complexes have been used to quantify substituent effects on the free energies of aromatic stacking interactions. The conformational properties of the complexes have been characterised using NMR spectroscopy in CDCl(3), and by comparison with the solid state structures of model compounds. The structural similarity of the(More)
The dithiolene ligand transfer reaction between Ni(S2C2Ph2)2 (1) and CpMo(CO)3Cl (2; Cp = eta-C5H5) affords the neutral paramagnetic molybdenum bis(dithiolene) complex CpM(S2C2Ph2)2 (3), which has been structurally characterized. As found in other d1 complexes of this type, one dithiolene ligand is planar while the other is significantly folded toward the(More)
The iridium/iodide-catalyzed carbonylation of methanol to acetic acid is promoted by carbonyl complexes of W, Re, Ru, and Os and simple iodides of Zn, Cd, Hg, Ga, and In. Iodide salts (LiI and Bu(4)NI) are catalyst poisons. In situ IR spectroscopy shows that the catalyst resting state (at H(2)O levels > or = 5% w/w) is fac,cis-[Ir(CO)(2)I(3)Me](-), 2. The(More)
The synthesis of dinuclear [Ru(II)([n]aneS(4))] (where n = 12, 14) complexes of the bridging ligand 3,6-bis(2-pyridyl)-1,2,4,5-tetrazine are reported. The X-ray structures of both of the new complexes are compared to a newly obtained structure for a dinuclear [Ru(II)([9]aneS(3))]-based analogue, whose synthesis has previously been reported. A comparison of(More)
The synthesis and photophysical study of (C/\N)Pt(II)Q complexes, where C/\N is a bidentate cyclometalating ligand and Q is 8-hydroxyquinoline or quinoline-8-thiol, are presented. The compounds were obtained as a single isomer with N atoms of the C/\N and Q ligands trans-coordinated to the Pt(II) center as shown by X-ray crystallography. These chromophores(More)
