Host-Guest Induced Electron Transfer Triggers Radical-Cation Catalysis.

Summary of "Host-Guest Induced Electron Transfer Triggers Radical-Cation Catalysis."

Modifying the reactivity of substrates by encapsulation is a fundamental principle of capsule catalysis. Here we show an alternative strategy, wherein catalytic activation of otherwise inactive quinone "co-factors" by a simple PdL capsule pro-motes a range of bulk-phase, radical-cation cycloadditions. Solution electron transfer experiments and cyclic voltammetry show the cage anodically shifts the redox potential of the encapsulated quinone by a significant 1 V. Moreover, the capsule also protects the reduced semiquinone from protonation, thus transforming the role of quinones from stoichiometric oxidants into catalytic single electron acceptors. We envisage that the host-guest induced release of an "electron hole" will translate to various forms of non-encapsulated catalysis that involve other difficult to handle, highly reactive species.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Derivatives of PYRIDINE containing a cation C5H5NH or radical C5H6N.

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)
