The catalytic disproportionation of NH(2)OH has been studied in anaerobic aqueous solution, pH 6-9.3, at 25.0 degrees C, with Na(3)[Fe(CN)(5)NH(3)].3H(2)O as a precursor of the catalyst, [Fe(II)(CN)(5)H(2)O](3)(-). The oxidation products are N(2), N(2)O, and NO(+) (bound in the nitroprusside ion, NP), and NH(3) is the reduction product. The yields of(More)
Iron(II) porphyrin nitrosyl complexes are obtained in high yields from the reaction of iron(III) porphyrins with the nitroxyl donors sodium trioxodinitrate and toluensulfohydroxamic acid. The reaction was found to proceed both in organic solvents and in aqueous media from iron(III) (meso-tetraphenyl) porphyrinate ([FeIII(TPP)]+) and iron(III) meso-tetrakis(More)
The nitroprusside ion [Fe(CN)(5)NO](2-) (NP) reacts with excess HS(-) in the pH range 8.5-12.5, in anaerobic medium ("Gmelin" reaction). The progress of the addition process of HS(-) into the bound NO(+) ligand was monitored by stopped-flow UV/Vis/EPR and FTIR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and chemical analysis. Theoretical calculations were employed for(More)
The reactions of hydroxylamine (HA) with several water-soluble iron(III) porphyrinate compounds, namely iron(III) meso-tetrakis-(N-ethylpyridinium-2yl)-porphyrinate ([Fe(III)(TEPyP)](5+)), iron(III) meso-tetrakis-(4-sulphonatophenyl)-porphyrinate ([Fe(III)(TPPS)](3-)), and microperoxidase 11 ([Fe(III)(MP11)]) were studied for different [Fe(III)(Porph)]/[HA](More)
Not so elusive: [Fe(II)(CN)(5)(HNO)](3-) has been characterized spectroscopically after the two-electron reduction of nitroprusside (see scheme). The complex is stable at pH 6, slowly decomposing to [Fe(CN)(6)](4-) and N(2)O. It is deprotonated at increasing pH value with oxidation of bound NO(-) to [Fe(II)(CN)(5)(NO)](3-). [Fe(II)(CN)(5)(HNO)](3-) is the(More)
The kinetics of the reaction between aqueous solutions of Na2[Fe(CN)5NO].2H2O (sodium pentacyanonitrosylferrate(II), nitroprusside, SNP) and MeN(H)OH (N-methylhydroxylamine, MeHA) has been studied by means of UV-vis spectroscopy, using complementary solution techniques: FTIR/ATR, EPR, mass spectrometry and isotopic labeling (15NO), in the pH range 7.1-9.3,(More)
The electrophilic reactivity of the pentacyanonitrosylferrate(II) ion, [Fe(CN)(5)NO](2)(-), toward hydrazine (Hz) and substituted hydrazines (MeHz, 1,1-Me(2)Hz, and 1,2-Me(2)Hz) has been studied by means of stoichiometric and kinetic experiments (pH 6-10). The reaction of Hz led to N(2)O and NH(3), with similar paths for MeHz and 1,1-Me(2)Hz, which form the(More)
The substituted hydroxylamines, CH(3)N(H)OH (N-methylhydroxylamine) and (CH(3))(2)NOH (N,N-dimethylhydroxylamine), disproportionate catalytically to the corresponding alkylamines and oxidation products, only in the presence of [Fe(CN)(5)H(2)O](3-). Substitution kinetic measurements suggest an initial coordination step to Fe(ii). Two parallel N- and(More)
The aquapentacyanoferrate(II) ion, [Fe(II)(CN)(5)H(2)O](3-), catalyzes the disproportionation reaction of O-methylhydroxylamine, NH(2)OCH(3), with stoichiometry 3NH(2)OCH(3) → NH(3) + N(2) + 3CH(3)OH. Kinetic and spectroscopic evidence support an initial N coordination of NH(2)OCH(3) to [Fe(II)(CN)(5)H(2)O](3-) followed by a homolytic scission leading to(More)
Two triarylamine centers bridged through an aliphatic bridge feature unexpected charge transfer properties, bearing an important electronic coupling between them in the absence of a π linker; EPR, electrochemistry, electronic spectroscopy and first principles molecular calculations are combined to study the electronic structure of this compound.
