Bioinorganic chemistry: Model offers intermediate insight.


Reporting in Angewandte Chemie, Liu et al. describe a tractable and functional chemical model for a reaction intermediate that is central to a variety of biologically important processes. Their model, known as a ferric hydroperoxo–haem intermediate, is chemically analogous to intermediates that have been observed or proposed for several classes of enzymes… (More)
