Abstract [en]

Proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET) from amino acids with water as the primary proton acceptor is a fundamental model reaction of wide relevance. We have investigated the kinetics and mechanism of PCET from tryptophan derivatives to laser flashgenerated [Ru(bpy)(3)](3+) oxidants in aqueous solutions. The PCET reaction followed either a concerted electron-proton transfer (CEP) mechanism or a step-wise electron transfer-proton transfer (ETPT) mechanism, depending on pH and the identity of the Ru-III oxidant. The CEP reaction showed a pH-dependent rate constant, with an increase in log k(CEP\) of 0.3-0.5 per pH unit, and a significant kinetic isotope effect (KIE = 2-4), both in intramolecular and bimolecular model systems. Our results suggest that CEP with water as the proton acceptor is a general feature of amino acid oxidation, and provide further experimental observations towards a detailed understanding of the PCET process in water.
