Electron-induced inversion of helical chirality in copper complexes of N,N-dialkylmethionines

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

The researchers have successfully demonstrated that by generating a change in the redox state of the central metal ion, in a conformationally biased complex, they are able to effect a change in the ligand-binding mode. This change in the first coordination sphere then forces a subsequent change in the second coordination shell. By carefully choosing ligands that contain a chiral center, the researchers were able to monitor the change in the second coordination shell by spectroscopically observing a shift in the chirality of the molecule.
