Rational design of minimal artificial Diels-Alderases based on the copper(II) cation-aromatic pi attractive interaction.


We have designed a minimal artificial metalloenzyme that is prepared in situ from Cu(OTf) 2 or Cu(NTf 2) 2 (1.0 equiv) and L-DOPA-derived monopeptide (1.1 equiv) based on the cation-pi attractive interaction between copper(II) and the aromatic arm of the ligand, which is postulated on the basis of X-ray diffraction analysis and theoretical calculations… (More)
