Metal and ligand hyperfine couplings of a previously suggested, energetically feasible Mn(4)Ca model cluster (SG2009(-1)) for the S(2) state of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) of photosystem II (PSII) have been studied by broken-symmetry density functional methods and compared with other suggested structural and spectroscopic models. This was carried out(More)
A recent EPR study (M. Perrez Navarro et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 2013, 110, 15561) provided evidence that ammonia binding to the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) of photosystem II in its S2 state takes place at a terminal-water binding position (W1) on the "dangler" manganese center MnA. This contradicted earlier interpretations of (14)N electron-spin-echo(More)
Based on broken-symmetry density functional calculations, the (55)Mn hyperfine tensors of a series of exchange-coupled, mixed-valence, dinuclear Mn(III) Mn(IV) complexes have been computed. We go beyond previous quantum chemical work by fully including the effects of local zero-field splitting (ZFS) interactions in the spin projection, following the(More)
