Blue copper proteins (BCPs) comprise classic cases of Nature's profound control over the electronic structures and chemical reactivity of transition metal ions. Early studies of BCPs focused on their inner coordination spheres, that is, residues that directly coordinate Cu. Equally important are the electronic and geometric perturbations to these ligands(More)
We constructed two artificial multiple-step electron transfer (hopping) systems based on Pseudomonas aeruginosa azurin where a tyrosine (YOH) is situated between Ru(2,2′-bipyridine)2(imidazole)(histidine) and the native copper site: RuH107YOH109 and RuH124-YOH122. We investigated the rates of CuI oxidation by flash-quench generated RuIII over a range of(More)
Removing underground, unexploded bombs, mortars, cannon-shells and other ordnance ("MEC" or "UXO") from former military ranges is difficult and expensive. The principal difficulty is discriminating intact, underground ordnance from other metallic items such as fragments of exploded ordnance ("Clutter"), magnetic rocks, and "historic" items such as(More)
