Abstract

Neutral hydrogen atoms are simple, one-electron-equivalent reagents and their reactions are of fundamental interest for chemical kinetics. Functional correlation between aromatic and divalent-sulfur amino acids in ribonuclease is shown in the reaction of ribonuclease with hydrogen atoms in aqueous solution. Products of the reaction are partially characterized.
