CHEM 4400

CHEM 4400

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

CHEM 4400 will focus on the physical methods used to interrogate the electronic and molecular structures of metalloenzymes and their reactive intermediates. Techniques will be introduced in the context of four case studies: blue copper, heme/cytochrome P450, metalloproteins bearing metal-cluster cofactors (nitrogenase and photosystem II), and metalloproteins with organometallic cofactors (hydrogenases). The contributions of data from spectroscopic methods to understanding of function will be emphasized. Students will apply their understanding of bioinorganic physical methods to current knowledge gaps through the preparation and defense of an original research proposal. Prerequisites enforced.

When Offered Spring.
