Three and easy: A class of tricopper complexes has been developed as mimics of the catalytic site of particulate methane monooxygenase. These CuICuICuI clusters are capable of the efficient oxidation of methane into MeOH upon activation by O2 at room temperature. The conversion is catalytic if H2O2 is used to drive the turnover.
