Beyond Tunnelling Corrections: Full Tunnelling Models for Enzymatic C–H Activation Reactions

The biological utilisation of energy from carbon-based metabolites is intimately linked to the enzymatic activation of C–H bonds, via proton, hydride and hydrogen-atom transfer mechanisms. An example of each type of reaction is shown in Scheme 6.1, with proton and hydride abstraction being found com...
