The stabilization of chromium(IV) and chromium(V) in aqueous systems has now been made through designed alterations in Franck-Condon barriers for the interconversion of various oxidation states of chromium. Equatorially coordinated macrocyclic and Schiff base ligands influence the reorganizational barriers for the conversion of Cr(III)-Cr(IV)-Cr(V)-Cr(VI) couples such that Cr(IV) and Cr(V) transients of sufficiently long life time can be generated. A series of macrocyclic and Schiff base complexes of Cr(III) has been synthesised and subjected to non-complementary redox reaction with Ce(IV) or electrochemical oxidation. A Cr(IV) macrocyclic complex, Cr(Me4tetraene)(H2O)24+, 1 has been generated in aqueous acidic medium, through electrochemical oxidation. The Ce(IV) oxidation of Cr(III) Schiff base complexes, diaqua[N,N′-ethylenebis(salicylideneiminato) chromium(III)], and diaqua[N,N′-propylenebis(salicylideneiminato) chromium(III)] proceed in two stages with 1 Cr:l Ce(IV) redox stoichiometry. Suffīciently long-lived Cr(IV) intermediates and Cr(V) Schiff base products have been generated. ESR evidence for the formation of Cr(V) Schiff base products and the mechanistic outcome of the oxidation of Cr(III) Schiff bases are discussed.

Some experimental approaches to seek semi-quantitative understanding of factors controlling outer sphere electron transfer reactions of some transition metal complexes have been made. The relative importance of nuclear and electronic factors to outer sphere processes has been examined. By the manipulation of Franck-Condon or nuclear factors, it has now been possible to gain access into the chemistry of chromium in unusual oxidation states. An example of a reorganisation controlled electron transfer reaction involving Cr(IV)-Cr(III) system has been demonstrated. The bimolecular rate of reduction of diperoxoaquaethylenediamine chromium(IV) and diperoxodiethylenetriamine chromium(IV) is independent of the nature of th reductant employed viz. Fe2+ or VO2+ indicating that the generation of

Binding energies of the interaction of collagen like triple helical peptides with a series of polyphenols, viz. gallic acid, catechin, epigallocatechingallate and pentagalloylglucose have been computed using molecular modelling approaches. A correlation of calculated binding energies with the interfacial molecular volumes involved in the interaction is observed. Calculated interface surface areas for the binding of polyphenols with collagen-like triple helical peptides vary in the range of 60–210 Å2 and hydrogen bond lengths vary in the range of 2.7–3.4 Å. Interfacial molecular volumes can be calculated from the solvent inaccessible surface areas and hydrogen bond lengths involved in the binding of polyphenols to collagen. Molecular aggregation of collagen in the presence of some polyphenols and chromium (III) salts has been probed experimentally in monolayer systems. The monolayer arrangement of collagen seems to be influenced by the presence of small molecules like formaldehyde, gluteraldehyde, tannic acid and chromium (III) salts. A fractal structure is observed on account of two-dimensional aggregation of collagen induced by tanning species. Atomic force microscopy has been employed to probe the topographic images of two-dimensional aggregation of collagen induced by chromium (III) salts. A case is made that long-range ordering of collagen by molecular species involved in its stabilisation is influenced by molecular geometries involved in its interaction with small molecules.
