The crystal structures of 10-chloroaquacobalamin perchlorate hydrate (10-Cl-H(2)OCbl.ClO(4)) (Mo Kalpha, 0.710 73 Å, monoclinic system, P2(1), a = 11.922(4) Å, b = 26.592(10) Å, c = 13.511(5) Å, beta = 93.05(3) degrees, 10 535 independent reflections, R(1) = 0.0426), 10-chlorocyanocobalamin-acetone hydrate (10-Cl-CNCbl) (Mo Kalpha, 0.710 73 Å, orthorhombic system, P2(1)2(1)2(1), a = 16.24(3) Å, b = 21.85(5) Å, c = 26.75(8) Å, 7699 independent reflections, R(1) = 0.0698), and 10-chloromethylcobalamin-acetone hydrate (10-Cl-MeCbl) (Mo Kalpha, 0.71073 Å, orthorhombic system, P2(1)2(1)2(1), a = 16.041(14) Å, b = 22.13(2) Å, c = 26.75(4) Å, 6792 independent reflections, R(1) = 0.0554), in which the C10 meso H is substituted by Cl, are reported. An unusual feature of the structures is disorder in the C ring, consistent with a two-site occupancy in which the major conformation has the C46 methyl group in the usual position, "upwardly" axial, and the C47 methyl group equatorial, while in the minor conformation both are pseudoequatorial, above and below the corrin ring. (13)C NMR chemical shifts of C46, C47, C12, and C13 suggest that the C ring disorder may persist in solution as a ring flip. Since molecular dynamics simulations fail to...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
