Steric effect of the dithiolato linker on the reduction mechanism of [Fe2(CO)6{μ-(XCH2)2CRR'}] hydrogenase models (X = S, Se).


Studying the redox features of the [FeFe]-hydrogenase models is essential for understanding the function of the H cluster. The reduction of the [FeFe]-hydrogenase models of the type [Fe2(CO)6{μ-(XCH2)2E}] (X = S, Se) is described to occur either via sequential transfer of two electrons at and for the first and the second reduction steps, respectively, where… (More)
