Title: Catalysts for the hydrolysis of thiophosphate triesters
Author: Picot, Alexandre
Abstract: The degradation of phosphate triesters is efficiently catalyzed by organophosphate hydrolases (OPH ) . While a number of recent studies have focused on optimizing the rate of hydrolysis observed with the native enzyme , no dinuclear complexes that mimic the function of OPH have been reported or investigated . Our present research focuses on the synthesis of dinuclear metal complexes and on the study of their catalytic abilities . An important aspect of this research concerns the investigation of the coordination chemistry of dinuclear ligands designed to hold two metal cations in well defined positions . The ability of the different complexes to catalyze the degradation of thiophosphate triester is presented . Out of several complexes studied , ortho -metallated Pd (II ) complexes have been found to display the highest catalytic activity for the hydrolysis of parathion .
