Not just copies: Recent advances in supramolecular coordination chemistry have allowed chemists to synthesize macromolecular complexes that exhibit various properties intrinsic to enzymes. This Review focuses on structures inspired by properties and functions observed in enzymes rather than precise models of enzyme active sites. Many of the structures exhibit reactivity and specificity reminiscent of natural systems, and some of them have functions that exceed the natural systems which provided the inspiration for initially making them.
