N2 - In order to create a heme environment that permits biomimicry of heme-containing peroxidases, a number of new hemin–peptide complexes—hemin-2(18)-glycyl-l-histidine methyl ester (HGH), hemin-2(18)-glycyl-glycyl-l-histidine methyl ester (HGGH), and hemin-2,18-bis(glycyl-glycyl-l-histidine methyl ester) (H2GGH)—have been prepared by condensation of glycyl-l-histidine methyl ester or glycyl-glycyl-l-histidine methyl ester with the propionic side chains of hemin. Characterization by means of UV/vis- and 1H NMR spectroscopy as well as cyclic- and differential pulse voltammetry indicates the formation of five-coordinate complexes in the case of HGH and HGGH, with histidine as an axial ligand. In the case of H2GGH, a six-coordinate complex with both imidazoles coordinated to the iron center appears to be formed. However, 1H NMR of H2GGH reveals the existence of an equilibrium between low-spin six-coordinate and high-spin five-coordinate species in solution. The catalytic activity of the hemin–peptide complexes towards several organic substrates, such as p-cresol, l-tyrosine methyl ester, and ABTS, has been investigated. It was found that not only the five-coordinate HGH and HGGH complexes, but also the six-coordinate H2GGH, catalyze the oxidation of substrates by H2O2. The longer and less strained peptide arm provides the HGGH complex with a slightly higher catalytic efficiency, as compared with HGH, due to formation of more stable intermediate complexes.
