The hemoprotein myoglobin is a model system for the study of protein dynamics. We used time-resolved serial femtosecond crystallography at an x-ray free-electron laser to resolve the ultrafast structural changes in the carbonmonoxy myoglobin complex upon photolysis of the Fe-CO bond. Structural changes appear throughout the protein within 500 femtoseconds,(More)
The reaction of 4-chloro-1,2-dimethyl-4-supersilylsila-1-cyclopentene (2 a) with Li[NiPr2] at -78 °C results in the formation of the formal 1,4-addition product of the silacyclopentadiene derivative 3,4-dimethyl-1-supersilylsila-1,3-cyclopentadiene (4 a) with 2,3-dimethyl-4-supersilylsila-1,3-cyclopentadiene (5 a). In addition the respective adducts of the(More)
