Biological Chemistry of Organelle Formation

Eukaryotic cells comprise a plurality of organelles exceptional through their particular membranes and contents. Their biogenesis happens through progress and department of preexisting constructions instead of de novo. Mitochondria and chloroplasts, which seem to be descended from prokaryotic ancestors, have retained a few DNA and the biosynthetic potential for its expression.

3 [4+2] Cycloadditions The mechanistic spectrum suggests that [4+2] cycloadditions should shift from concerted reactions in the delocalization band to stepwise reactions through intermediates in the pseudoexcitation band. 5 in Chapter “Elements of a Chemical Orbital Theory” by Inagaki in this volume). The reactions occur in a concerted manner. In the pseudoexcitation band the HOMO–HOMO–LUMO–LUMO interaction is important. The HOMO– HOMO and LUMO–LUMO interactions are, however, forbidden by the orbital symmetry at the six-membered ring transition states for the Diels–Alder reactions.

The frontier orbital interaction is the n–πC=C interaction (Scheme 30b), which is impossible at the four-membered ring transition states. This is not good for the retention of the configuration.

The interaction between the HOMO (d) of the donors and the LUMO (a*) of the acceptors or delocalization of electrons is important for the reactions. The electron d-to-a* transferred configuration mixes to a significant extent. As the donors and/or the acceptors are strong, their excited configurations appreciably mixes together with the transferred configuration.
