  • A. Equilibrium and second-order rate constants have been measured for the redox reaction between phthaloquinone and dihydroriboflavin (and its reverse) at a number of pH values. The equilibria and kinetic determinations are in agreement. No intermediates could be found in the reaction, and it is proposed that with this and other quinones electron transfer occurs within a complex of the flavin and hydroquinone (or dihydroflavin and quinone). B. A survey of the reaction between mercaptans and… CONTINUE READING
