Recent Publication

The article explains a reactivity of BesC as being the first example of a dinuclear-iron enzyme that utilizes a diferric-peroxo intermediate to capably cleave a C–H bond as part of its native function, thus circumventing the formation of a high-valent intermediate more commonly associated with substrate monooxygenations.

The separation of propadiene from propyne/propadiene mixtures remains challenging. Here, the authors report a sorbent screening protocol and show that metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with open metal sites and cage-based molecule traps exhibit high performance for propyne/propadiene separation.
