Abiotic allosteric regulation: The design, synthesis, and application of novel, reversible allosteric catalytic molecular tweezers that contain a structural metal, addressable in situ, and two functional catalytic metals are reported (see picture). Kinetic and selectivity data reflect a significant decrease in cooperativity upon opening of the “arms” of the catalyst caused by reactions occurring at the hinge.
