Model compounds of Copper proteins
The structures and properties of model compounds of copper proteins are studied in order to better understand the functions, structures and properties of these metalloproteins which occur in biological systems.
Galactose oxidase, which contains a type 1b copper atom, oxidizes a number of primary alcohols including galactose to the corresponding aldehydes. Model compounds of galactose oxidase are being synthesized and characterised and their reactions with sugars and alcohols are being investigated.
