    Abstract

    The reduction reaction of the Cu(II)-pitn complex (pitn = 1,3-di(pyridine-2-carboxaldimino)propane) by decamethylferrocene [Fe(Cp*)2] was examined in acetonitrile. The observed pseudo-first-order rate constants exhibited saturation kinetics with increasing excess amount of [Fe(Cp*)2]. Detailed analyses revealed that the reaction is controlled by a structural change prior to the electron transfer step, rather than a conventional bimolecular electron transfer process preceded by ion pair (encounter complex) formation. The rate constant for the structural change was estimated to be 275 ± 13 s-1 at 298 K ({increment}H* = 33.3 ± 1.0 kJ·mol-1, {increment}S* = 86 ± 5 J·mol-1·K-1), which is the fastest among gated reactions involving CuN4 complexes. It was confirmed by EPR measurement and Conflex calculations that the dihedral angle between the two N-N planes is significantly large (40°) in solution whereas it is merely 17.14° in the crystal.
