Abstract: The SPASIBA force field parameters have been obtained for Fe3+ /Fe2+ -Oxygeninteractions occuring between non-heminic iron and hydroxyl groups of polyphenols foundin tannins. These parameters were derived from normal modes analyses based on quantumchemical calculations using the Density Functional Theory (DFT). Four models involvingcomplexation of iron with water ([Fe(H2O)6]3+ , [Fe(H2O)6]2+ ) and with cathechol molecules([Fe(cat)2(H2O)2]-1, [Fe(cat)2(H2O)2]-2) were studied using the Density Functional Theoryand the B3LYP hybrid functional under high spin states of iron.
Keywords: (FeIII/FeII)-Poyphenols interactions; Tannins; Density Functional Theory; SPASIBA force field.
