Overview


Provides an understanding of bioinorganic reactions from a mechanistic point of view. Illustrates how spectroscopy can be used to establish mechanisms and how model compounds provide mechanistic insight for enzymes. Demonstrates how to apply numerous physical methods to understanding mechanisms of redox catalysis by metal centers in enzymes. Highlights the interrelationships between the roles of metal ions in electron transfer, redox catalysis, structural roles, and hydrolytic chemistry. Provides mechanistic insights into water oxidation, nitrogen fixation, nucleic acid oxidation and hydrolysis, oxygen binding, catalase reactions, and electron transfer.
