Selective peracetic acid determination in the presence of hydrogen peroxide using a label free enzymatic method based on catalase

Peracetic acid has been successfully determined in water samples treated with commercial PAA/H2O2 biocides and a theoretical study has also been carried out for obtaining a mathematical model able to analytically describe the process.

Mechanism-based inactivation of horseradish peroxidase by sodium azide. Formation of meso-azidoprotoporphyrin IX.

The finding that catalytically generated nitrogen radicals add to the meso carbon of heme shows that biological meso additions are not restricted to carbon radicals.

Turnover Capacity of Coprinus cinereus Peroxidase for Phenol and Monosubstituted Phenols

Molar turnover capacities of CIP correlated well with substituent effects quantified by radical σ values and semiquantitatively with homolytic O−H bond dissociation energies of the phenolic substrates, suggesting that phenoxyl radical intermediates are probably involved in the suicide inactivation of C IP.
