A Model of the [FeFe] Hydrogenase Active Site with a Biologically Relevant Azadithiolate Bridge: A Spectroscopic and Theoretical Investigation
2011 (English)In: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, ISSN 1433-7851, E-ISSN 1521-3773, Vol. 50, no 6, 1439-1443 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Convincing evidence for the presence of a nitrogen atom in the dithiolate bridge of the active site of native [FeFe] hydrogenases (B) is provided by a spectroscopic, electrochemical, and theoretical study of a well-characterized structural mimic of the [FeFe] hydrogenase subcluster (picture: 14N matched-HYSCORE spectrum of the model compound A). This result should help to understand the mechanism of dihydrogen conversion and production.
