Chemistry of Ru(edta) complexes relevant to oxidoreductases mimicking: A personal perspective

Abstract

This report provides our research progresses exploring the use of Ru(edta) complexes (edta4- = ethylenediaminetetraacetate) as a small-molecule model for mimicking the activity oxidoreductases family of enzymes (viz. oxidases, peroxidases, oxygenases, reductases) in regard to small molecules activation (or transformation) with a focus on incorporating the mechanistic information towards better understanding the reaction pathways of such enzymatic reactions. Our research contributions reported herein show how the presence and absence of water molecules in the primary coordination sphere of the Ru(edta) complex governs the inner-sphere and outer-sphere pathways for the aforesaid enzyme mimicking activity of Ru(edta). Efforts were made to place our achievements into perspective along with the accomplishment of others.
