    • Abstract


      Synthetic ferroverdins, NaFe11(RQ)3 afford trinuclear M[Fe(RQ)3]2 upon reaction with bivalent ions (M2+). A probable bonding mode is considered. Ferric ions oxidise ferroverdin to ferriverdin, FeIII(RQ)3. Bothfac andmer isomers can be observed for ferro- and ferriverdins but at equilibrium the preferred isomers arefac for ferro- andmer for ferriverdin. Mismatch in geometry with oxidation state gets spontaneously corrected by isomerisation. Equilibrium constants, isomerisation rates, redox potentials and EPR spectra are examined. A study on the pattern of isomer population as a function of oxidation for other 3d analogues of ferro- and ferriverdin is initiated.
