Catalase vs Peroxidase Activity of a Manganese(II) Compound:
Identification of a Mn(III)-(μ-O)2-Mn(IV) Reaction Intermediate by
Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry and Electron Paramagnetic
Inorganic Chemistry, 48 (10).
Herein, we report reactivity studies of the mononuclear water-soluble complex [Mn(II)(HPClNOL)(η1-NO3)(η2-NO3)]
1, where HPClNOL ) 1-(bis-pyridin-2-ylmethyl-amino)-3-chloropropan-2-ol, toward peroxides (H2O2 and tertbutylhydroperoxide).
Both the catalase (in aqueous solution) and peroxidase (in CH3CN) activities of 1 were evaluated
using a range of techniques including electronic absorption spectroscopy, volumetry (kinetic studies), pH monitoring
during H2O2 disproportionation, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), electrospray ionization mass spectrometry
in the positive ion mode [ESI(+)-MS], and gas chromatography (GC). Electrochemical studies showed that 1 can
be oxidized to Mn(III) and Mn(IV). The catalase-like activity of 1 was evaluated with and without pH control. The
results show that the pH decreases when the reaction is performed in unbuffered media. Furthermore, the activity
of 1 is greater in buffered than in unbuffered media, demonstrating that pH influences the activity of 1 toward H2O2.
For the reaction of 1 with H2O2, EPR and ESI(+)-MS have led to the identification of the intermediate [Mn(III)Mn(IV)(μ-
O)2(PClNOL)2]+. The peroxidase activity of 1 was also evaluated by monitoring cyclohexane oxidation, using H2O2
or tert-butylhydroperoxide as the terminal oxidants. Low yields (<7%) were obtained for H2O2, probably because it
competes with 1 for the catalase-like activity. In contrast, using tert-butylhydroperoxide, up to 29% of cyclohexane
conversion was obtained. A mechanistic model for the catalase activity of 1 that incorporates the observed lag
phase in O2 production, the pH variation, and the formation of a Mn(III)-(μ-O)2-Mn(IV) intermediate is proposed.
