In 1992, nitric oxide (NO) won the title molecule of the year. Research showed that NO played a role in biological functions including neurotransmission, blood clotting, blood pressure control, and the immune system's ability to kill tumor cells and intracellular parasites. One way NO is stored in the body for delivery is as a dinitrosyl iron complex (DNIC). Roussin's red esters (RREs) are the dimeric DNIC and are composed of two iron connected via two bridged ligands. A novel ligand was used to synthesize two new Roussin's red esters; Fe2(μ-S-1-Adm)2(NO) 4 and Fe2(μ-S-1-Adm)2(NO)4 + Fe2(μ-S(1-Adm)(Me))2(NO)4. The esters were characterized using IR, EPR, NMR, UV Vis, CV, and X-ray crystallography.
