Sulfur oxygenation at non-heme iron centers

This article is HOT as recommended by the referees. And we’ve made it free to access for 4 weeks.

McQuilken and Goldberg discuss the synthesis, structure and reactivity of non-heme iron(II/III)-thiolate model complexes that are known to react with O2 to give sulfur oxygenates in this hot Perspective.  Comprehension of the pathways involved in sulfur oxygenation will aid research towards catalytic applications involving metal-mediated O2 oxidations as well as developing understanding surrounding nonheme iron enzymes, many of which are vital of important biochemical pathways.
