It is widely assumed that the gain or loss of electrons in a material must be accompanied by its reduction or oxidation. Here, we report a system in which the insertion/deinsertion of an electron occurs without any reduction or oxidation.
The control of the tacticity of synthetic polymers enables the realization of emergent physical properties from readily available starting materials.
Lysine crotonylation (Kcr) is a histone post-translational modification that is implicated in numerous epigenetic pathways and diseases.
Methods for the synthesis of cyclopropanes are critical for drug discovery, chemical biology, total synthesis, and other fields. Herein, we report the use of the strong sterically encumbered Lewis acid tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane as a catalyst for the cyclopropanation of unactivated alkenes using aryldiazoacetates.
Despite advances in the development of molecular catalysts capable of reducing dinitrogen to ammonia using proton donors and chemical reductants, few molecular electrocatalysts have been discovered. This Perspective considers the prospects of electrocatalyst development based on a mechanism featuring the cleavage of N-2 into metal nitride complexes.
A unique chain-rupturing transformation that converts an ether functionality into two hydrocarbyl units and carbon monoxide is reported by the Miller Group...
Here, we demonstrate the potential for biogenic SOA to activate as depositional INPs in the upper troposphere by combining field measurements with laboratory experiments.
The Pseudomonas virulence factor (pvf) operon is essential for the biosynthesis of two very different natural product scaffolds: the (dihydro)pyrazine-N-oxides and the diazeniumdiolate, valdiazen. PvfB is a member of the non-heme diiron N-oxygenase enzyme family that commonly convert anilines to their nitroaromatic counterparts.
Ribosomal antimicrobial peptide (AMP) natural products, also known as ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) or host defense peptides, demonstrate....
Lysine crotonylation (Kcr) is a histone post-translational modification that is implicated in numerous epigenetic pathways and diseases. Recognition of Kcr by YEATS domains has been proposed to occur through intermolecular amide−π and alkene−π interactions, but little is known about the driving force of these key interactions. Herein, we probed the recognition of lysine crotonylation and acetylation by the AF9 YEATS domain through incorporation of noncanonical Phe analogs with distinct electrostatics at two positions.
Chemistry Professor, Dorothy Erie, collaborates with researchers to conduct research on how proteins MutL and MutS prevent DNA replication errors by creating an immobile structure that calls more proteins to the site to repair the error
