    Photo-oxidation of Ru-flavonolate

    And here's Jenny's followup paper that shows two distinct reactivities from two distinct excitation/emission manifolds that we assign to tautomerization associated with excited state intramolecular proton transfer

    Mechanistic Investigations of Photoinduced Oxygenation of Ru(II) Bis-bipyridyl Flavonolate Complexes

    SOS - small oxoacids of sulfur

    Ravi's pub on trapping SOS produced by biological oxidations of H2S finally came out... this one has big implications

    Chemical trapping and characterization of small oxoacids of sulfur (SOS) generated in aqueous oxidations of H2S

    Redox Biology 2018  DOI: 10.1016/j.redox.2017.10.01


    New pubs!!

    We've been soooo busy that we forgot to mention all of our publications that have come out recently... Michael Spiegel has two in collaboration w/ the Garner group.

    Synthesis, crystal structures, and characterization of the complexes of the bulky ligand 2,6-bis-(3′,5′-diphenylpyrazolyl)pyridine with ruthenium, rhodium, and palladium  

    Polyhedron 2018 DOI: 10.1016/j.poly.2017.11.004

    First row metal complexes of the hindered tridentate ligand 2,6-bis-(3′,5′-diphenylpyrazolyl)pyridine

    Inorganica Chimica Acta 2018 DOI: 10.1016/j.ica.2017.12.032


    Advanced Instrumentation Workshop

    This year’s AIW was very successful, we provided 37 workshops (92 hours worth!) to 47 students and 11 mentors from 14 schools.  This year our grad students updated photos to Twitter (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23AIWBaylor2017&src=typd&lang=en)… Here’s a picture of Santiago Toledo from Saint Andrews University in Austin w/ the Bruker EPR we used.


    Pub update

    haven't been attentive to this webpage... need to acknowledge Ravi Kumar's new pub in HOT area of S-biology

    “Chemical trapping and characterization of small oxoacids of sulfur (SOS) generated in aqueous oxidations of H2S” in Redox Biol. 2017



    • Small oxoacids of sulfur (SOS) are generated in the biomimetic oxidations of H2S
    • SOS were trapped and characterized using LC-HRMS
    • Unique sulfenyl and sulfinyl tautomers for each SOS were identified
    • Heme globins and cobalamin react with H2S to generate SOS
    • SOS should be considered in the observed biological action of H2S
