Abstract

A mechanistic study of the anation of type 2 Cu(II) in fully oxidized lacease by azide and thiocyanate ions (X-) is reported. The rate data support a mechanism involving rapid formation of an outer-sphere complex (laccase-X-) followed by rate-limiting dissociative interchange to give the inner-sphere complex (laccase-X-) product.
