Iron Nitrosyl Complexes

by Fortney, Carol F

Abstract (Summary)
Nitric oxide (NO) is an endogenously produced bioregulatory agent that also is toxic. Disturbances in NO production and regulation are known to cause central nervous system disorders and asthma among many other diseases. Iron nitrosyl complexes help to balance the beneficial effects of NO against its potentially fatal effects. This document reviews the literature devoted to structural and chemical characteristics of iron nitrosyl porphyrin complexes, bimetallic iron containing nitrosyl complexes, dinitrosyl complexes, iron nitrosyl cluster complexes, and non-heme nitrosyl complexes prepared between 1992 and 2002.
