  1. 1. Dinuclear Manganese Complexes for Artificial Photosynthesis : Synthesis and Properties

    Author : Magnus Anderlund; Björn Åkermark; William H. Armstrong; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Crystal Structure; Artificial photosynthesis; Manganese complex; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the synthesis and characterisation of a series of dinuclear manganese complexes. Their ability to donate electrons to photo-generated ruthenium(III) has been investigated in flash photolysis experiments followed by EPR-spectroscopy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mimicking Nature – Synthesis and Characterisation of Manganese Complexes of Relevance to Artificial Photosynthesis

    Author : Gustav Berggren; F. Magnus Anderlund; Leif Hammarström; Vincent Pecoraro; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Manganese; biomimetic; artificial photosynthesis; water splitting; homogeneous catalysis; Chemistry; Kemi; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : The development of efficient catalyst for water oxidation is of paramount importance to artificial photosynthesis, but before this can be achieved a deeper understanding of this reaction is essential. In nature this reaction occurs in a tetranuclear Mn-cluster which serves as the work-horse of oxygenic photosynthesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Iron, Manganese and Iridium Complexes From Models of RNR and Catalase to Water Oxidation

    Author : Michele Bedin; Anders Dr. Thapper; Sascha Prof. Ott; Vadim G. Kessler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Iron; manganese; MnCAT; RNR; biomimetic; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis has been synthesise and study metal complexes that mimic the structure and function of the active site in two particular metalloenzymes, ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) and manganese catalase (MnCAT). These two metalloenzymes both have two transition metals ions in the cofactor: two manganese ions in MnCAT and either two iron, iron-manganese or two manganese ions in RNR. READ MORE

  4. 4. Photosynthetic Oxygen Evolution - EPR studies of the manganese cluster of photosystem II

    Author : Sindra Peterson Årsköld; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; S2 state; second cycle; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism; S0 state; light-adaptation; pulsed EPR; methanol; relaxation; microwave power saturation; S-cycle; Oxygen-evolving complex; Water-oxidizing complex;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a new electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signal from photosystem II is presented. The signal is shown to originate from the S0 oxidation state of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC). READ MORE

  5. 5. Manganese ores as oxygen carriers for chemical-looping combustion

    Author : Sebastian Sundqvist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical-looping with oxygen uncoupling; gaseous fuel; methane; syngas; Chemical-looping combustion; manganese ores; combined oxides; wood char and solid fuels;

    Abstract : Chemical looping combustion (CLC) is a fluidized bed system that circulates metal oxide particles in order to transport oxygen from an air reactor to a fuel reactor. In the fuel reactor a fuel reduces the oxygen carrier while producing CO2 and H2O. The oxygen carrier is then transported back to the air reactor and reoxidized. READ MORE
