Transition metals as electron traps. I. Structures, energetics, electron capture, and electron-transfer-induced dissociations of ternary copper-peptide complexes in the gas phase



Transition metals as electron traps. I. Structures, energetics, electron capture, and electron-transfer-induced dissociations of ternary copper-peptide complexes in the gas phase



Journal of Mass Spectrometry 44(5): 707-724



Electron-induced dissociations of gas-phase ternary copper-2,2'-bipyridine complexes of Gly-Gly-Gly and Gly-Gly-Leu were studied on a time scale ranging from 130 ns to several milliseconds using a combination of charge-reversal ((+)CR(-)) and electron-capture-induced dissociation (ECID) measured on a beam instrument and electron capture dissociation (ECD) measured in a Penning trap. Charge-reduced intermediates were observed on the short time scale in the (+)CR(-) and ECID experiments but not in ECD. Ion dissociations following electron transfer or capture mostly occurred by competitive bpy or peptide ligand loss, whereas peptide backbone fragmentations were suppressed in the presence of the ligated metal ion. Extensive electron structure theory calculations using density functional theory and large basis sets provided optimized structures and energies for the precursor ions, charge-reduced intermediates, and dissociation products. The Cu complexes underwent substantial structure changes upon electron capture. Cu was calculated to be pentacoordinated in the most stable singly charged complexes of the [Cu(peptide-H)bpy](+*) type where it carried a approximately +1 atomic charge. Cu coordination in charge-reduced [Cu(peptide-H)bpy] intermediates depended on the spin state. The themodynamically more stable singlet states had tricoordinated Cu, whereas triplet states had a tetracoordinated Cu. Cu was tricoordinated in stable [Cu(peptide-H)bpy](-*) products of electron transfer. [Cu(peptide)bpy](2+*) complexes contained the peptide ligand in a zwitterionic form while Cu was tetracoordinated. Upon electron capture, Cu was tri- or tetracoordinated in the [Cu(peptide)bpy](+) charge-reduced analogs and the peptide ligands underwent prototropic isomerization to canonical forms. The role of excited singlet and triplet electronic states is assessed.
