A five-line ESR spectrum was observed at room temperature in reactions of sperm whale metmyoglobin with ethyl hydroperoxide (EtOOH) at pH 9.5 and with potassium irridate at pH's 7.0 and 9.5. A spectrum with the same g value and hyperfine splitting constant appeared in a reaction of sperm whale apomyoglobin with potassium irridate and was assigned to a… CONTINUE READING
