Transition metal complexes are located at the active sites of a number of enzymes involved in intriguing biochemical reactions. These complexes can exhibit a wide variety of chemical reactivity due to the ease at which transition metals can adopt different coordination environments and oxidation states. Crystallography has been a powerful technique for examining the structure and conformational variability of complex biological metallocenters. In particular, the past ten years have provided a… CONTINUE READING
