The magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) study of [Co(2)(mu-OH)(mu-Ph(4)DBA)(TMEDA)(2)(OTf)], in which Ph(4)DBA is the dinucleating bis(carboxylate) ligand dibenzofuran-4,6-bis(diphenylacetate) and TMEDA is N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine, is presented. This complex serves as an excellent spectroscopic model for a number of dicobalt(II) enzymes and proteins that have both the mu-hydroxo, mu-carboxylato bridging and asymmetric 6- and 5-coordination. The low-temperature MCD spectrum of the… CONTINUE READING
