47_49b/2008Inside Cover: A Synthetic Analogue of Rieske-Type [2Fe-2S] Clusters (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 49/2008)

Iron–sulfur proteins of the Rieske type contain a redox-active [2Fe-2S] site that can be described as a variant of the related ferredoxins, but with unsymmetrical Cys2His2 coordination. This unusual Fe/S cluster could now be emulated in a synthetic model for the first time, using relatively simple ligands. In their Communication on page 9537 ff., F. Meyer and co-workers report the successful synthesis as well as the spectroscopic and structural characterization of the biomimetic analogue, which was also analyzed by DFT calculations.
