ion phase that leads to an alkyl radical coordinated to the iron-hydroxo complex by a weak OH---C hydrogen bond, labeled as CI; (ii) an alkyl (or OH) rotation phase whereby the alkyl group achieves a favorable orientation for rebound; and (iii) a rebound phase that leads to C-O bond making and the ferric-alcohol complexes, 4,2P. The two profiles remain close in energy throughout the first two phases and then bifurcate. Whereas the HS state exhibits a significant barrier and a genuine TS for… 
Beyond ferryl-mediated hydroxylation: 40 years of the rebound mechanism and C–H activation
The history of radical rebound mechanisms, their general features, and key intermediates involved are recounted, and it is envisioned that new chemistry will continue to arise by bridging enzymatic “radical rebound” with synthetic organic chemistry.
Radical Rebound Hydroxylation Versus H-Atom Transfer in Non-Heme Iron(III)-Hydroxo Complexes: Reactivity and Structural Differentiation.
The synthesis and characterization of a series of iron complexes with hydrogen bonding interactions between bound aquo or hydroxo ligands and the secondary coordination sphere in ferrous and ferric complexes are reported, lending further support to the proposed mechanism for desaturation in iron-2OG desaturase enzymes.
A DFT study of the heme role in the N-demethylation of theophylline mediated by compound I of cytochrome P450
Using accurate DFT calculations we have examined the role that Compound I of cytochrome P450 plays as a catalyst in the conversion of theophylline to 1-methylxanthine. This reaction proceeds in two
Probing the C–O Bond-Formation Step in Metalloporphyrin-Catalyzed C–H Oxygenation Reactions
The oxygen rebound mechanism, proposed four decades ago, is invoked in a wide range of oxygen- and heteroatom-transfer reactions. In this process, a high-valent metal-oxo species abstracts a hydrogen
Oxidizing intermediates in P450 catalysis: a case for multiple oxidants.
The P450 reaction cycle and each of the reactive intermediates to discuss their role in oxidation reactions is reviewed.
Proximal ligand electron donation and reactivity of the cytochrome P450 ferric-peroxo anion.
Analysis of the product distribution in the reaction of the selenocysteine substituted enzyme reveals a gain in the formation of the acid (Compound I pathway) at the expense of deformylation products, consistent with an increase in the pK(a) of the ferric-peroxo anion, which favors its protonation and, therefore, Compound I formation.
Hydrogen peroxide decomposition by a non-heme iron(III) catalase mimic: a DFT study.
The computations suggest that H2O2 decomposition follows a homolytic route with intermediate formation of an iron(IV) oxo radical cation species (L.+FeIV==O) that resembles Compound I of natural iron porphyrin systems.
Catalytic Mechanism of Aromatic Nitration by Cytochrome P450 TxtE: Involvement of a Ferric-Peroxynitrite Intermediate
Findings provide the first detailed insight into the mechanism of nitration by a member of the TxtE subfamily and highlight how the enzyme facilitates this novel reaction chemistry.
Oxidation of tertiary amines by cytochrome p450-kinetic isotope effect as a spin-state reactivity probe.
The computational results reveal that in the reverse reaction of N-oxygenation, the N-oxide of aromatic amine can serve as a better oxygen donor than that of aliphatic amine to generate Cpd I, in good accord with experimental data previously reported.


Biomimetic oxidations catalyzed by transition metal complexes
Thermodynamic influences of C-H bond oxidation, J.M. Mayer distinguishing biomimetic oxidations from oxidations mediated by freely diffusing radicals, K.U. Ingold, P.A. MacFaul and B. Meunier bioinspired oxidations catalysed by rythenium complexes.
Cytochrome P-450: Structure, Mechanism, and Biochemistry
The Cytochrome P450 and the Metabolism and Bioactivation of Arachidonic Acid and Eicosanoids in Plants and the Diversity and Importance of Microbial Cytochromes P450 are studied.
