We have designed new trithiols Temp(SH)(3) and Tefp(SH)(3) that can be synthesized conveniently in short steps and are useful for preparation of crystalline [3:1] site-differentiated [4Fe-4S] clusters suitable for X-ray structural analysis. The ethanethiolate clusters (PPh(4))(2)[Fe(4)S(4)(SEt)(TempS(3))] (4a) and (PPh(4))(2)[Fe(4)S(4)(SEt)(TefpS(3))] (4b)(More)
[4Fe-4S] clusters modeled after those in organisms having three cysteine thiolates and one carboxylate were synthesized by using the tridentate thiolato chelate. X-ray structural analysis reveals that the carboxylates coordinate to the unique irons in an η(1) manner rather than η(2). Redox potentials show a positive shift from that of the cluster having(More)
