Entry M0130 22.214.171.124 naphthalene 1,2-dioxygenase
Previous Step Next Step
The peroxo group attacks the naphthalene substrate in a nucleophilic addition that causes the double bond to attack the peroxo group, cleaving the O-O bond and forming the epoxide intermediate.
Rate Determining Step
Comment: Bassan et al.  suggest that a feasible reaction pathway leading to naphtalene dioxygenation could be accessed only for the hydroperoxo-iron(III) species.
