Two water-soluble tris(2-aminoethylamine) (tren) capped iron porphyrins were synthesized. The stability of their dioxygen adducts was studied in phosphate buffer, leading to half-life times around 7 min for the oxygenated species.

    ABSTRACT: The X-ray structure of a nickel chiral bis-strapped porphyrin is reported. Each strap bears four amide linkages, one of them delivering a nitrogen base. The porphyrin core is strongly distorted, presumably by the conformation of the straps.

    ABSTRACT: A hydrophobic tetraphenylporphyrinatoiron(II) derivative bearing a covalently bound axial imidazole [Fe(II)P] was efficiently and noncovalently bound into human serum albumin (HSA) up to an average of eight Fe(II)P molecules per HSA molecule. The aqueous solutions of the HSA-Fe(II)P complex provided a reversible and relatively stable oxygen adduct under physiological conditions (pH 7.4 and 37 degrees C). The half-life of the oxygen adduct (tau 1/2) was 1 h at 37 degrees C in an air atmosphere. With Fe(II)-TpivPP (the so-called "picket-fence heme") having no axial base, an oxygenated HSA-Fe(II)TpivPP complex was obtained using a 20-fold molar excess of 1,2-dimethylimidazole, but the tau 1/2 was very short (ca. 10 min at 37 degrees C). The oxygen affinity [P 1/2(O2)] and oxygen transporting efficiency (OTE) of HSA-Fe(II)P at 37 degrees C were 30 Torr and 22%, respectively. Furthermore, the oxygen-binding and dissociation rate constants (kon and koff) are extremely high in comparison with those of hemoglobin. The HSA molecule binding eight Fe(II)P molecules can transport about 3.4 mL/dL of oxygen under physiological conditions, corresponding to about 60% of the oxygen transporting amount of human blood.

    ABSTRACT: A series of tris(2-aminoethylamine) (tren) capped iron(II) porphyrins has been synthesized and characterized and their affinities for dioxygen and carbon monoxide measured. The X-ray structure of the basic scaffold with nickel inserted in the porphyrin is also reported. All the ligands differ by the nature of the group(s) attached to the secondary amine functions of the cap. These various substitutions were introduced to probe if a hydrogen bond with these secondary amine groups acting as the donor could rationalize the high affinity of these myoglobin models. This work clearly indicates that the cage structure of the tren predominates over all the other appended groups with the exception of p-nitrophenol.
