Several biophysical properties of four synthetic archaeal phospholipids [one polyprenyl macrocyclic lipid A and three polyprenyl double-chain lipids (B, C, D) bearing zero, one or four double bonds in each chain] were studied using differential scanning calorimetry, electron and optical microscopies, stopped-flow/light scattering and solid-state 2H-NMR(More)
We have reported previously that an iron(III) complex supported by an anionic pentadentate monoamido ligand, dpaq(H) (dpaq(H) =2-[bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)]amino-N-quinolin-8-yl-acetamido), promotes selective CH hydroxylation with H2 O2 with high regioselectivity. Herein, we report on the preparation of Fe(III) -dpaq derivatives that have a series of(More)
Selective oxidation: the success of the title reaction is caused by the strong electron donation from the amidate moiety of the dpaq ligand to the iron center (dpaq=2-[bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)]amino-N-quinolin-8-yl-acetamidate). This process facilitates the O-O bond heterolysis of the intermediate Fe(III)OOH species to generate a selective oxidant without(More)
The preparation and characterisation of an oxoiron(IV) species with monoamido ligation are described. Reactivity studies revealed the important role of the amido ligand in enhancing the ability of oxoiron(IV) complexes to promote hydrogen atom transfer from external alkanes.
A mononuclear iron(III) complex of a noncyclic tetradentate monoamido ligand, Fe(III)mpaq, catalyses the oxidation of Orange II, guaiacol, ABTS and Amplex Red with H2O2 in aqueous solutions at neutral pH. Under identical conditions, other structurally related nonheme iron complexes showed only negligible activities.
