Chemists have long sought to regulate the reactivity of H2, to yield hydride ions, hydrogen atoms, or electrons on demand. One source of inspiration for achieving this control is [NiFe]hydrogenase ([NiFe]H2ase), which reacts with H2 to form various hydrogen active species such as NiIII hydride species, NiII hydride species, and NiI low‐valent species. Chemists have attempted to synthesize these hydrogen active species not only as models for the active species of [NiFe]H2ase, but also as electron transfer catalysts. However, the synthesis of NiI complex directly from H2 has not been reported. This paper reports the first example of a single‐step synthesis of a NiI complex, via reaction of a NiII complex with H2, stable for over 3 months at room temperature and we further demonstrate a reductive coupling of acridinium ions as part of a reaction cycle..

These enzymes come in three distinct classes: [NiFe] H2ases, which have a propensity toward H2 oxidation; [FeFe] H2ases, which have a propensity toward H2 evolution; and [Fe] H2ases, which catalyze H- transfer. Modeling these enzymes has so far treated them as different species, which is understandable given the different cores and ligand sets of the natural molecules. Here, we demonstrate, using x-ray analysis and nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared, Mössbauer spectroscopies, and electrochemical measurement, that the catalytic properties of all three enzymes can be mimicked with only three isomers of the same NiFe complex..

Although many studies of DNA damage by ROS have been conducted, there have been no reports of the oxidation of RNA components, such as guanosine monophosphate, by metal-based species in water. Here, we report the first case of oxidation of guanosine monophosphate to 8-oxoguanosine monophosphate by a metal-based oxygen bound species, derived from O
and in water..

Yuki Mori, Tatsuya Ando, Takahiro Matsumoto, Takeshi Yatabe, Mitsuhiro Kikkawa, Ki Suk Yoon, Seiji Ogo, Multifunctional Catalysts for H2O2-Resistant Hydrogen Fuel Cells, Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, 10.1002/anie.201810270, 57, 48, 15792-15796, 2018.11, The development of hydrogen fuel cells is greatly hindered by the unwanted generation of H2O2 at the cathode. A non-Pt cathode catalyst is now shown to be capable of simultaneously reducing both O2 and H2O2, thus rendering H2O2 a useful part of the feed stream. The applicability of this unique catalyst is demonstrated by employing it in a fuel cell running on H2/CO and O2/H2O2..
8. Takeshi Yatabe, Taisuke Tokunaga, Takahiro Matsumoto, Mitsuhiro Kikkawa, Ki-Seok Yoon, Seiji Ogo, A Mn-I Model for the Photoinhibited Species of Oxygen-evolving Complex, CHEMISTRY LETTERS, 10.1246/cl.170869, 47, 1, 34-36, 2018.01, We report the reactivity of a new Mn-I(cyclam) complex (cyclam: 1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane) toward O-2 and H2O as a model for the photoinhibited species of oxygen-evolving complex (OEC). The reactivity varies according to the number of CO ligands. A Mn-I dicarbonyl complex, [Mn-I(cyclam)(CO)(2)](+) reacts with O-2, but not with H2O, to form a bis(mu-oxo) Mn-2(III,IV) complex, though a Mn-I tricarbonyl complex, [Mn-I(cyclam)(CO)(3)](+) does not react with either O-2 or H2O. Newly synthesized Mn-I(cyclam) dicarbonyl complex was characterized by ESI mass spectrometry, UV-vis absorption spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, and X-ray analysis..

This catalyst is connected to carbon-black-supported platinum as a cathode catalyst, which reduces dioxygen in a manner analogous to cytochrome c oxidase. Together, they make a system capable of switching between the two modes..

Kinetic study reveals Michaelis-Menten type saturation behaviors for both H-2 and O-2 activation, which is the same behavior as that found in O-2-tolerant [NiFe]hydrogenase. Such saturation behavior is caused by H-2 complexation followed by heterolytic cleavage of H-2 by an outer-sphere base, resulting in the formation of a hydride species showing hydridic character..

Here, we report just such a catalyst, with the ability to catalyze the oxidation of either or both H-2 and CO, based on the pH value. This catalyst is based on a NiIr core that mimics the chemical function of [NiFe] hydrogenase in acidic media (pH 4-7) and carbon monoxide dehydrogenase in basic media (pH 7-10). We have applied this catalyst in a demonstration fuel cell using H-2, CO, and H (2)/CO (1/1) feeds as fuels for oxidation at the anode. The power density of the fuel cell depends on the pH value in the media of the fuel cell and shows a similar pH dependence in a flask. We have isolated and characterized all intermediates in our proposed catalytic cycles..

25. Nga T. Nguyen, Takeshi Yatabe, Ki-Seok Yoon, Seiji Ogo, Molybdenum-containing membrane-bound formate dehydrogenase isolated from Citrobacter sp S-77 having high stability against oxygen, pH, and temperature, JOURNAL OF BIOSCIENCE AND BIOENGINEERING, 10.1016/j.jbiosc.2014.03.011, 118, 4, 386-391, 2014.10, Membrane-bound formate dehydrogenase (FDH) was purified to homogeneity from a facultative anaerobic bacterium Citrobacter sp. S-77. The FDH from Citrobacter sp. S-77 (FDHS77) was a monomer with molecular mass of approximately 150 kDa. On SDS-PAGE, the purified FDHS77 showed as three different protein bands with molecular mass of approximately 95, 87, and 32 kDa, respectively. Based on the N-terminal amino acid sequence analysis, the sequence alignments observed for the 87 kDa protein band were identical to that of the large subunit of 95 kDa, indicating that the purified FDHS77 consisted of two subunits; a 95 kDa large subunit and a 32 kDa small subunit. The purified FDHS77 in this purification did not contain a heme b subunit, but the FDHS77 showed significant activity for formate oxidation, determined by the V-max of 30.4 U/mg using benzyl viologen as an electron acceptor. The EPR and ICP-MS spectra indicate that the FDHS77 is a molybdenum-containing enzyme, displaying a remarkable O-2-stability along with thermostability and pH resistance. This is the first report of the purification and characterization of a FDH from Citrobacter species. (c) 2014, The Society for Biotechnology, Japan. All rights reserved..

According to the phylogenetic analysis determined by 165 rRNA gene sequence, the strain 0-77 belongs to the genus Leptolyngbya, classifying into filamentous non-heterocystous cyanobacteria. The strain 0-77 showed the thermophilic behavior with optimal growth temperature of 55 degrees C. Moreover, we have purified and characterized the oxygen-evolving photosystem II (PSII) from the strain 0-77. The O-2-evolving activity of the purified PSII from strain 0-77 (PSII077) was 1275 +/- 255 mu mol O-2 (mg ChI a)(-1) h(-1). Based on the results of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and urea-SDS-PAGE analysis, the purified PSII077 was composite of the typical PSII components of CP47, CP43, PsbO, D2, D1, PsbV, PsbQ, PsbU, and several low molecular mass subunits. Visible absorption and 77 K fluorescence spectra of the purified PSII077 were almost identical to those of other purified PSIIs from cyanobacteria. This report provides the successful example for the purification and characterization of an active PSII from thermophilic, filamentous non-heterocystous cyanobacteria.
