Abstract

Charged models (-/+1) for MoFe cofactor of a nitrogenase system have been considered for PM3 (RHF) type semiempirical quantum chemical calculations. The stabilities of the models were calculated and it was found that negatively charged model is more stable and more exothermic than the positively charged one. The calculated vibrational spectra and some quantum chemical data are presented for the models. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
