2.2. Oxydations photocatalytiques par Ru-métalloenzymes artificielles
R. Ricoux


Light induced enantioselective oxidation of an organic molecule with water as the oxygen atom source was demonstrated in a system where chirality was induced by a protein, oxygen atom transfer by a manganese corrole, and photocatalysis by ruthenium complexes.

The Mn(TpCPP)-Xln10A artificial metalloenzyme, obtained by non-covalent insertion of Mn(III)-meso-tetrakis(p-carboxyphenyl)porphyrin [Mn(TpCPP), 1-Mn] into xylanase 10A from Streptomyces lividans (Xln10A) as a host protein, was found able to catalyze the selective photo-induced oxidation of organic substrates in the presence of [RuII(bpy)3]2+ as a photosensitizer and [CoIII(NH3)5Cl]2+ as a sacrificial electron acceptor, using water as oxygen atom source.
