Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

[Mo(TmMe)(O)2Cl]: an alternative functional model of sulfite oxidase

Spicer, Mark and Reglinski, John and Wallace, Dawn and Gibson, Lorraine (2007) [Mo(TmMe)(O)2Cl]: an alternative functional model of sulfite oxidase. Inorganic Chemistry, 46. 3804 - 3806. ISSN 0020-1669

Abstract

The hydrotris(methimazolyl)borate anion (TmMe) has been used to synthesize an alternative functional model ([Mo(TmMe)(O)2Cl]) of the metalloenzyme sulfite oxidase. It has been shown that the complex undergoes oxygen atom transfer chemistry and that it performs the primary function of the enzyme, sulfite oxidation. A method using ion chromatography has been developed to definitively prove that sulfite is oxidized to sulfate.
