Vibrant insight

Thursday, 12. January 2017

New joint paper by Driess and Hildebrandt in Angewandte Chemie. The first S-oxygenated [NiFe] complex is a structural and vibrational spectroscopic model for the S-oxygenated active site of the NAD+-reducing [NiFe] hydrogenase from Ralstonia eutropha.

The first S-oxygenated [NiFe] complex is a structural and vibrational spectroscopic model for the S-oxygenated active site of the NAD+-reducing [NiFe] hydrogenase from Ralstonia eutropha. A combined spectroscopic and theoretical study reveals a highly polarized sulfenato moiety in the bioinspired model complex, thereby providing a key perspective for future investigations of this enzyme.
