Artificially mimicking the active sites of enzymes and surfaces
Funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the MUSYCA project seeks to increase understanding of the key factors that govern carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bond activation mechanisms in dinuclear transition metal-based cores present in enzymes or surfaces. One of the main goals is to obtain complexes containing M2O entities that are reactive enough to oxidise C-H bonds. The project will use a wide variety of analytical techniques to study the reactivity patterns and the corresponding mechanisms underlying the formation of M-O fragments and those involving the C-O bond formation. The project will also develop unsymmetrical platforms for the development of heterobimetallic complexes to explore and understand the synergy between two transition metals in different chemical transformations.
