This study compares the behavior as cytochrome c oxidase (CcO) functional and structural models of a series of reported and unreported ligands that provide either a binding site for copper without a built-in proximal base, or both a flexible binding site for copper and a built-in proximal base, or a fixed binding site for copper with a built-in proximal… (More)
Cleavage reactions of 2,3-diamino-meso-tetraarylporphyrins and meso-tetraarylporphyrins fused to imidazole rings afforded secochlorins including stable free base derivatives.
The versatility of a resorcinol-substituted phenanthroline-strapped porphyrin was enhanced by appending allyl chains via a double Claisen rearrangement. Two pyridine arms were then appended to the resorcinol oxygens. This multifunctional porphyrin is a suitable generic building block for the preparation of liposoluble heme protein models. X-ray… (More)
Calf management in traditional cattle herds in many parts of the tropics receive less attention as compared to immediate income-generating cows or bulls. Information on long-term implications of poorly reared young stock is limited. A study to assess practices, challenges and opportunities during rearing of less than 12-month-old calves in traditional… (More)
NHC ligands annulated to free-base porphyrins can be reversibly switched between electron-poor and electron-rich states upon protonation and deprotonation of the inner nitrogen atoms of the porphyrin. Metallation of the macrocycle with nickel(II) locks the peripheral NHC ligand in its electron-rich state.
Livestock farmers are known to be at high risk of exposure to zoonosis. A convenience survey to assess Senegalese traditional cattle farmers' knowledge and attitudes regarding zoonotic diseases with reference to bovine brucellosis was conducted. A total of 222 cattle farmers were interviewed. Just over a quarter (30.1%) of the study participants knew or had… (More)
The molecular recognition of human telomeric G-quadruplexes by a novel cationic π-extended Ni(II)-porphyrin (Ni(II)-TImidP4) is studied in aqueous solutions via (chir)optical spectroscopy, Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) melting assay, and computational molecular modeling. The results are systematically compared with the recognition by a… (More)
A strategy for the stepwise annulation of pyrrolic rings of a porphyrin to imidazole rings is presented. Mono(imidazole), Janus and corner bis(imidazole), T-shaped tris(imidazole), and tetrakis(imidazole) porphyrins have been synthesized and characterized.
We report herein a detailed study of the use of porphyrins fused to imidazolium salts as precursors of N-heterocyclic carbene ligands 1 M. Rhodium(I) complexes 6 M-9 M were prepared by using 1 M ligands with different metal cations in the inner core of the porphyrin (M=Ni(II) , Zn(II) , Mn(III) , Al(III) , 2H). The electronic properties of the corresponding… (More)
