Structure and Function in Organometallic Protein ComplexesReview
Bioorganometallic chemistry is a rapidly growing subfield of organometallic chemistry. One important facet is the study of organometallic•protein complexes that contain a covalent bond between the protein and an organometallic prosthetic group. Structural elucidation of these complexes is being used with increasing frequency to determine exactly where metal binding takes place and to obtain accurate structural information. This review summarizes the structures in this field, highlighting how this information has driven the frontier of this research.
