  1. 1. Development of Ruthenium Catalysts for Water Oxidation

    Författare :Tanja M. Laine; Björn Åkermark; Antoni Llobet; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; homogeneous catalysis; O-O bond formation; photocatalysis; ruthenium; water oxidation; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : An increasing global energy demand requires alternative fuel sources. A promising method is artificial photosynthesis. Although, the artificial processes are different from the natural photosynthetic process, the basic principles are the same, i.e. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mechanistic Insights into Transition Metal Oxide Catalyzed Water Oxidation

    Författare :Michael Busch; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :water oxidation; density functional theory; electrochemistry; water splitting; catalysis; water oxidation;

    Sammanfattning : A binuclear mechanism was proposed and evaluated by means of Density Functional Theory calculations. The central reaction steps were found to be the oxidation of the transition metal TM-OH moieties to TM=O and the subsequent intramolecular O-O bond formation between two TM=O groups. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Challenges in Enzyme Catalysis - Photosystem II and Orotidine Decarboxylase : A Density Functional Theory Treatment

    Författare :Marcus Lundberg; Margareta Blomberg; Per Siegbahn; Jeremy Harvey; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; photosystem II; oxyl radical; manganese systems; orotidine decarboxylase; reaction mechanism; density functional theory; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi;

    Sammanfattning : Possibly the most fascinating biochemical mechanism remaining to be solved is the formation of oxygen from water in photosystem II. This is a critical part of the photosynthetic reaction that makes solar energy accessible to living organisms. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Thiyl radicals, reaction kinetics and redox chemistry

    Författare :Rong Zhao; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : In focusing on the free radical chemistry of thiyl radicals,two importantclasses are dealt with, namely, the amino acidalkylthiyl and the acylthiyl radicals, where pulse radiolysisand steady state γ-radiolysis are applied.Amino acid thiyl radicals (RS•), are important in manybiological systems,as intermediates in the repair reactions ofthiols towards targeted carbon-centeredradicals and ascatalytic centers in many enzymatic reactions.

  5. 5. Computational Studies on Homogeneous Water Oxidation Catalysts

    Författare :Ge Li; Mårten S. G. Ahlquist; Moyses Araujo; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computational studies; homogeneous; water oxidation catalysts; ruthenium; iron; mechanisms; Teoretisk kemi och biologi; Theoretical Chemistry and Biology;

    Sammanfattning : To combat the increasing energy demand and climate change, artificial photosynthesis is a promising approach to producing renewables by storing energy into chemicals and fuels. Water oxidation, responsible for offering electrons and protons to the reduction reactions, suffers from slow kinetics. LÄS MER
