The International Symposium on Nuclear Structure Physics (NP2001) was
held in Gottingen Germany, March 5-8, 2001. The aim of the Symposium
was to discuss recent achievements and new initiatives for research in nuclear
structure and to celebrate the career of Peter von Brentano.
Chapter 3 - Structure and stereochemistryof alkanes. In this chapter you will learn: Draw and name the isomers of alkanes, and explain the trends in their physical properties; draw alkane conformations, compare their energies, and predict the most stable conformations; draw and name the isomers of cycloalkanes, and explain ring strain; draw the conformations of cycloalkanes, compare their energies, and predict the most stable conformations.
Although belonging to the widely investigated peroxidase
superfamily, lactoperoxidase (LPO) and myeloperoxidase
(MPO) share structural and functional features that make
them peculiar with respect to other enzymes of the same
group. A survey of the available literature on their catalytic
intermediates enabled us to ask some questions that
remained unanswered. These questions concern controver-sial features of theLPOandMPOcatalytic cycle, suchas the
existence of Compound I and Compound II isomers and
the identification of their spectroscopic properties....
