Model studies on the active site of cytochrome P-450: An FeII-porphyrin carrying a strapped thiolate ligand

Alan R. Battersby, William Howson, Andrew D. Hamilton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An FeII-porphyrin has been synthesised with a strap carrying a thiolate residue covalently bound across one face of the macrocycle; the spectroscopic properties of the carbon monoxide complex of this model system closely match those of the CO-complex of cytochrome P-450.
