Quantum tunnelling in enzyme-catalysed reactions( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This accessible introduction to modern theories of enzyme catalysis presents the latest methods for studying quantum tunnelling in biological systems, In recent years, there has been an explosion in knowledge and research associated with the field of enzyme catalysis and H-tunneling. Rich in its breath and depth, this introduction to modern theories and methods of study is suitable for experienced researchers those new to the subject. Edited by two leading experts, and bringing together the foremost practitioners in the field, this up-to-date account of a rapidly developing field sits at the interface between biology, chemistry and physics. It covers computational, kinetic and structural analysis of tunnelling and the synergy in combining these methods (with a major focus on H-tunneling reactions in enzyme systems). The book starts with a brief overview of proton and electron transfer history by Nobel Laureate, Rudolph A. Marcus. The reader is then guided through chapters covering almost every aspect of reactions in enzyme catalysis ranging from descriptions of the relevant quantum theory and quantum/classical theoretical methodology to the description of experimental results. The theoretical interpretation of these large systems includes both quantum mechanical and statistical mechanical computations, as well as simple more approximate models. Most of the chapters focus on enzymatic catalysis of hydride, proton and H" transfer, an example of the latter being proton coupled electron transfer. There is also a chapter on electron transfer in proteins. This is timely since the theoretical framework developed fifty years ago for treating electron transfers has now been adapted to H-transfers and electron transfers in proteins. Accessible in style, this book is suitable for a wide audience but will be particularly useful to advanced level undergraduates, postgraduates and early postdoctoral workers

Studies on the conversion of PHX to AcAn by Rudolph A Marcus( )

2 editions published in 1946 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the recent conflict, cyclotrimethylene triamine, more familiarly known as RDX, was recognized by both the Allies and the enemy as the most powerful explosive available in large quantities. The production of RDX stemmed from two main processes, (a) the Woolich Reaction (1), and (b) the Bachmann or Combination Method (2). The former essentially consisted in reaction between hexamine and fuming nitric acid, while in the latter hexamine is acted upon by nitric acid, ammonium nitrate and acetic anhydride in the presence of acetic acid. Although recent research on the explosive has been concerned mainly with problems of production, a new field in organic chemistry was simultaneously developed, that of the polymethylene nitramines. The mass of data thus accumulated emphasized the frequency of the reaction involving rupture of a methylene carbon-nitrogen bond by "acetyl nitrate", the acetate grouping attaching itself to the carbon and the nitro group to the nitrogen atom. Indeed the mechanisms (3, 4) proposed for the formation of RDX and related compounds generally included this as an essential step. Acetyl nitrate was suggested as the active agent, purely for convenience, but without experimental basis. ... These considerations made it of interest to attempt a detailed study of the reaction leading to the rupture of the methylene carbon-nitrogen bond. ..."--

Study of Rate of Nonequilibrium Decomposition of Energetic Molecules( Book )

2 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the initiation of an explosion and subsequent reaction, molecules can acquire energy by a variety of mechanisms. The manner in which these molecules assimilate this energy will determine their subsequent behavior. A study on energy redistribution within a molecule is initiated in the present report. Different cases in which a statistical or a dynamical theory is preferable for treating the rate of decomposition of molecules caused by chemical or thermal activation are described. Experimental evidence is considered from this point of view. Current studies on the dynamical treatment of classical, quantum and semiclassical methods are summarized. (Modified author abstract)

Theory of ozone isotopic effects and various electron transfer reactions by Yi Qin Gao( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three separate topics, each stimulated by experiments, are treated theoretically in this dessertation: isotopic effects of ozone, electron transfer at interfaces, and intramolecular directional electron transfer in a supramolecular system. The strange mass-independent isotope effect for the enrichment of ozone, which has been a puzzle in the literature for some 20 years, and the equally puzzling unconventional strong mass-dependent effect of individual reaction rate constants are studied as different aspects of a symmetry-driven behavior. A statistical (RRKM-based) theory with a hindered-rotor transition state is used. The individual rate constant ratios of recombination reactions at low pressures are calculated using the theory involving (1) small deviation from the statistical density of states for symmetric isotopomers, and (2) weak collisions for deactivation of the vibrationally excited ozone molecules. The weak collision and partitioning among exit channels play major roles in producing the large unconventional isotope effect in "unscrambled" systems. The enrichment studies reflect instead the non-statistical effect in "scrambled" systems. The theoretical results of low-pressure ozone enrichments and individual rate constant ratios obtained from these calculations are consistent with the corresponding experimental results. The isotopic exchange rate constant for the reaction ^(16)O + ^(18)O ^(18)O→+ ^(16)O ^(18)O + ^(18)O provides information on the nature of a variationally determined hindered-rotor transition state using experimental data at 130 K and 300 K. Pressure effects on the recombination rate constant, on the individual rate constant ratios and on the enrichments are also investigated. The theoretical results are consistent with the experimental data. The temperature dependence of the enrichment and rate constant ratios is also discussed, and experimental tests are suggested. The desirability of a more accurate potential energy surface for ozone in the transition state region is also noted. Electron transfer reactions at semiconductor /liquid interfaces are studied using a tight-binding model for the semiconductors. The slab method and a z-transform method are employed in obtaining the tight-binding electronic structures of semiconductors having surfaces. The maximum electron transfer rate constants at Si/viologen^(2-/+) and InP /Me_(2)Fc^(+/O) interfaces are computed using the tight-binding type calculations for the solid and the extended-Huckel for the coupling to the redox agent at the interface. These electron transfer reactions are also studied using a free electron model for the semiconductor and the redox molecule, where Bardeen's method is adapted to calculate the coupling matrix element between the molecular and semiconductor electronic states. The calculated results for maximum rate constant of the electron transfer from the semiconductor bulk states are compared with the experimentally measured values of Lewis and coworkers, and are in reasonable agreement, without adjusting parameters. In the case of InP /liquid interface, the unusual current vs applied potential behavior is additionally interpreted, in part, by the presence of surface states. Photoinduced electron transfer reactions in small supramolecular systems, such as 4-aminonaphthalimide compounds, are interesting in that there are, in principle, two alternative pathways (directions) for the electron transfer. The electron transfer, however, is unidirectional, as deduced from pH-dependent fluorescence quenching studies on different compounds. The role of electronic coupling matrix element and the charges in protonation are considered to explain the directionality of the electron transfer and other various results. A related mechanism is proposed to interpret the fluorescence behavior of similar molecules as fluorescent sensors of metal ions

Energy Distributions in Molecules( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The paper describes results on modes of anharmonically coupled oscillators in a molecule, the role of energy exchange and near-degeneracy, and quasi-periodic versus ergodic theory of unimolecular reactions. The quasi-periodic one is a formal generalization of Slater's harmonic oscillator theory. Spectral decomposition of a classical trajectory for the molecule provides insight into the molecular spectrum, both in the low (quasi-periodic) and high (ergodic) energy regimes. The role of quantization of transition states in unimolecular reactions and a relation to vibrational adiabaticity are analyzed. Results obtained on energy distribution of translational energy of molecular beam reactions involving intermediate complexes and tight exit channel transition states are described together with the relation to intramolecular energy randomization
A Simple DWBA ('Franck-Condon') Treatment of H-Atom Transfers between Two Heavy Particles( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A simple DWBA (Franck-Condon) method for calculating the probability of transferring a light particle between two heavy ones in a collinear collision at energies below and around the reaction threshold is presented. The region is the important one for the thermal reaction rates. The method is tested for two different model LEPS surfaces for H-atom transfer with moderately high barriers. The results are in good agreement with those of accurate multi-channel calculations. The transition probability is calculated as an overlap integral over the reactants' and products' wavefunctions and the interaction potential. The reactants' and products' wavefunctions are calculated from their respective distortion potentials as one-term adiabatically separable approximations. Both the distortion potentials and the interaction potentials are extracted straightforwardly from the LEPS surface. The novel feature of the approach is that for the first time accurate results for the absolute values of the reaction probability are obtained from a simple overlap of single-channel approximate wavefunctions obtained directly from the respective parts of the potential energy surface for the reaction
