Tuning the redox potential of tyrosine-histidine bioinspired assemblies.
TLDR
Insight is provided regarding the factors controlling the redox potential of the phenol and strategies for the design of futures constructs capable of transporting protons across longer distances while maintaining a high potential ofThe phenoxyl radical/phenol redox couple are highlighted. Expand
A facile biomimetic catalytic activity through hydrogen atom abstraction by the secondary coordination sphere in manganese(III) complexes.
TLDR
The synthesis and structural characterization of four new manganese(iii) complexes derived from N3O donor Schiff base ligands and their biomimetic catalytic activities related to catechol oxidase and phenoxazinone synthase are described. Expand
Excited-state proton-coupled electron transfer within ion pairs†
TLDR
It is shown that ion pairs, formed solely through electrostatic interactions, provide a general, facile means to study an ES-PCET mechanism, and were critical to the ability to investigate this PCET mechanism without the need to covalently link the donor and acceptor or introduce specific hydrogen bonding sites that could compete in alternate PCET pathways.

A multicolour bistable electronic shelf label based on intramolecular proton-coupled electron transfer
TLDR
A bistable electrochromic device with good overall performance—including bistability, reversibility, colouration efficiency, and transmittance change—was designed and developed based on concerted intramolecular proton-coupled electron transfer, which was used to develop black, magenta, yellow and blue displays as well as a multicolour bistables electrochromics shelf label.

Catechol thioethers with physiologically active fragments: Electrochemistry, antioxidant and cryoprotective activities.
TLDR
Thioethers 3, 4 and 7 demonstrate the combination of radical scavenging, antioxidant activity and iron(II) binding properties, and novel cryoprotective additives in cryomedium reduce significantly the content of membrane-permeating agent (DMSO). Expand
Proton-coupled electron transfer oxidation of O-H bond by the N-radical cation of Wurster's blue salt (TMPDA˙+).
TLDR
This work shows that a nitrogen-centered radical cation (R3N˙+) such as TMPDA˙+ is more than a weak single-electron oxidant, and can also be an effective PCET reagent for oxidative bond activation. Expand
Transition State Asymmetry in C-H Bond Cleavage by Proton-Coupled Electron Transfer.
TLDR
The results probe the fundamental rate vs. driving force relationships in this MS-CPET reaction at carbon by separately modulating the driving force for the proton and electron transfer components and suggest that the transition states for these reactions are imbalanced. Expand
Reassessment of the Four-Point Approach to the Electron-Transfer Marcus–Hush Theory
TLDR
The main results are obtained by the application of the Nelsen’s four-point method to compute the reorganization energies of a large set of potential π-conjugated molecules proposed for organic photovoltaic devices using the above-mentioned averages for the Marcus–Hush formula. Expand

TLDR
Application of test procedures led to the conclusion that the homogeneous reaction is non-adiabatic, with a transmission coefficient of the order of 0.005, and that the self-exchange reorganization energy is about 1 eV lower than previously estimated. Expand

TLDR
While the many correlations accessible for electron transfers are not available for H-transfers in enzymes, a combination of experiment, computation, and analytical approaches can assist in evaluating the utility of the present equations and in suggesting further experiments and computations.

Calculation of vibronic couplings for phenoxyl/phenol and benzyl/toluene self-exchange reactions: implications for proton-coupled electron transfer mechanisms.
TLDR
The present analysis provides a new diagnostic for differentiating between the conventionally defined hydrogen atom transfer and proton-coupled electron transfer reactions, and provides insights into the fundamental physical differences between these two types of reactions. Expand
Carboxylates as proton-accepting groups in concerted proton-electron transfers. Electrochemistry of the 2,5-dicarboxylate 1,4-hydrobenzoquinone/2,5-dicarboxy 1,4-benzoquinone couple.
TLDR
The kinetics of the electrochemical reaction and the observation of a significant hydrogen/deuterium kinetic isotope effect unambiguously indicate that electron transfer and proton transfer are concerted, thus providing an additional demonstration of the role of carboxylate groups as proton-accepting sites in concerted propton-electron transfer reactions.

Concerted proton-electron transfer in the oxidation of hydrogen-bonded phenols.
TLDR
Three phenols with pendant, hydrogen-bonded bases (HOAr-B) have been oxidized in MeCN with various one-electron oxidants, among the first detailed analyses of CPET reactions where the proton and electron move to different sites. Expand
Estimation of electronic coupling for intermolecular electron transfer from cross-reaction data.
TLDR
Although the principal factor affecting intermolecular electron-transfer rate constants is clearly lambda, H'ab effects are easily detectable, and the dynamic range in the estimates of them is over a factor of 600. Expand
Kinetic effects of hydrogen bonds on proton-coupled electron transfer from phenols.
TLDR
The results suggest that while a concerted reaction has a relatively high reorganization energy (lambda), this may be significantly reduced by the hydrogen bonds, allowing for a lower barrier reaction path, which is ideal for PCET reactions in biological systems. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of enzyme systems is providing increasing evidence of a role for active site residues in optimizing the inter-nuclear distance for nuclear tunneling, in particular whether the system in question is able to tune distance between reactants to achieve maximal tunneling efficiency. Expand
