Biomimetic Trispyrazolylborato Iron Complexes

Strike while the iron's hot: Even after more than 15 years, biomimetic iron trispyrazolylborato complexes (see picture) are still good for a surprise. Recent examples of interception reactions for FeIV[DOUBLE BOND]O species and the use of substrate-analogous compounds show that concepts that were long neglected in the field of biomimetic models may produce exciting results.
