N[bond]C(alpha) bond dissociation energies and kinetics in amide and peptide radicals. Is the dissociation a non-ergodic process?


Dissociations of aminoketyl radicals and cation radicals derived from beta-alanine N-methylamide, N-acetyl-1,2-diaminoethane, N(alpha)-acetyl lysine amide, and N(alpha)-glycyl glycine amide are investigated by combined density functional theory and Møller-Plesset perturbational calculations with the goal of elucidating the mechanism of electron capture… (More)
