Since, CDF1 showed better steady-state free radical scavenging and calf thymus DNA protection ability, we subjected it to nanosecond pulse radiolysis and stop flow spectrophotometric studies.
These papers represent some of the latest developments and covers some surprisingly multidisciplinary topics, such as the elucidation of electron-transfer pathways in copper and iron proteins by pulse radiolysis; peptide- or protein-cleaving agents based on metal complexes; the structure of coordination polymers of the lanthanide elements; the supramolecular chemistry of gases; the organometallic chemistry of Rh-, Ir , Pd- and Pt-based radicals; unique complexes in the diverse world of metal-alkyne chemistry; oxygen activation chemistry of Pacman and Hangman porphyrin architecture based on xanthene and dibenzofuran spacers; metal-containing nucleic acid structures based on synergetic hydrogen and coordination bonding; and bispidine coordination chemistry.
