Profiling mechanisms: The mechanism of oxidative ring closing that leads to the antibiotic fosfomycin was studied with quantum chemistry methods. For the native substrate ((S)-HPP)), the reaction involves generation of the reactive FeIV[DOUBLE BOND]O species, which is responsible for the C[BOND]H bond cleavage. For activation of the weaker C[BOND]H bond in (R)-HPP, FeIII[BOND]O2. is sufficient (see scheme).
