The Bierenstiel Group is syntheszing binuclear (2-metal) transition-metal complexes for the study of metal-metal interactions. These interactions can be applied for enhancement of catalysis. The complexes can be used to study metalloproteins as small molecules to model the active sites of these proteins. and material.
