Two remarkable features of many siderophores produced by oceanic bacteria are the prevalence of an α-hydroxy-carboxylic acid functionality either in the form of the amino acid β-hydroxy aspartic acid or in the form of citric acid, as well as the predominance of amphiphilic siderophores. This review will provide an overview of the photoreactivity that takes(More)
The reactivity between a thiolate-ligated five-coordinate complex [FeII(SMe2N4(tren))]+ (1) and dioxygen is examined in order to determine if O2 activation, resembling that of the metalloenzyme cytochrome P450, can be promoted even when O2 binds cis, as opposed to trans, to a thiolate. Previous work in our group showed that [FeII(SMe2N4(tren))]+ (1) reacts(More)
Superoxide reduction by thiolate-ligated [FeII(SMe2N4(tren))]+ (1) involves two proton-dependent steps and a single peroxide intermediate, [FeIII(SMe2N4(tren))(OOH)]+ (2). An external proton donor is required, ruling out mechanisms involving H+ or H-atom abstraction from the ligand N-H. The initial protonation step affording 2 occurs with fairly basic(More)
The syntheses and structures of three new coordinatively unsaturated, monomeric, square-pyramidal thiolate-ligated Fe(III) complexes are described, [Fe(III)((tame-N(3))S(2)(Me2))](+) (1), [Fe(III)(Et-N(2)S(2)(Me2))(py)](1-) (3), and [Fe(III)((tame-N(2)S)S(2)(Me2))](2-) (15). The anionic bis-carboxamide, tris-thiolate N(2)S(3) coordination sphere of 15 is(More)
