Summary of "Substitution effects on olefin epoxidation catalyzed by Oxoiron(IV) porphyrin π-cation radical complexes: A dft study."

The effects of peripheral fluorine atoms on epoxidation reactions of ethylene by oxoiron(IV) porphyrin cation radical complex in the quartet and sextet spin multiplicities are systematically investigated using the DFT method. The overall reaction routes are determined using a model system of ethylene and Fe(IV)OCl-porphyrin with substituted fluorine atoms. By obtaining the energy diagrams and electron- and spin-density difference contour maps of the transition states and intermediate compounds, we confirm that the electron-withdrawing by peripheral fluorine atoms enhances the reactivity as the number of fluorine atoms increases, as is observed experimentally. The intersystem crossing between the quartet and sextet spin multiplicities is discussed by means of the intrinsic reaction coordinate method. We conclude that the rate-determining step is located at the first transition state (TS1) for the activation of CC and FeO bonds, and the ground electronic state changes from quartet to sextet around the TS1. © 2019 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subgroup of TRP cation channels that are widely expressed in various cell types. Defects are associated with POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES.

The naturally occurring or experimentally induced replacement of one or more AMINO ACIDS in a protein with another. If a functionally equivalent amino acid is substituted, the protein may retain wild-type activity. Substitution may also diminish, enhance, or eliminate protein function. Experimentally induced substitution is often used to study enzyme activities and binding site properties.

A subgroup of TRP cation channels named after melastatin protein. They have the TRP domain but lack ANKYRIN repeats. Enzyme domains in the C-terminus leads to them being called chanzymes.

A subgroup of TRP cation channels that contain 3-4 ANKYRIN repeats and a conserved C-terminal domain. Members are highly expressed in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Selectivity for calcium over sodium ranges from 0.5 to 10.

A subgroup of TRP cation channels named after vanilloid receptor. They are very sensitive to TEMPERATURE and hot spicy food and CAPSAICIN. They have the TRP domain and ANKYRIN repeats. Selectivity for CALCIUM over SODIUM ranges from 3 to 100 fold.
