2015_21/2015Modelling Binuclear Metallobiosites: Insights from Pyrazole-Supported Biomimetic and Bioinspired Complexes (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 21/2015)

The back cover picture shows the overlap between natural metallobiosites and synthetic pyrazolato-based model complexes with respect to their ability to activate ubiquitous small molecules, such as dioxygen and water. The crystal structures illustrate this activation, depicting the peroxide-bound form of hemocyanin and the hydroxide-bridged configuration of phosphotriesterase, as well as the central coordination motifs in the two corresponding pyrazole-supported biomimetic complexes. Insights derived from studying such models of these and related binuclear metalloproteins are relevant in fields ranging from biological to inorganic and medicinal chemistry, and in catalysis research. Details are presented in the Microreview by K. E. Dalle and F. Meyer on p. 3391 ff.
