Artificial Metalloenzymes Laboratory

Endowing Organometallic Chemistry with a (Genetic) Memory
Artificial metalloenzymes result from the incorporation of an abiotic cofactor within a protein scaffold. Such hybrid catalysts combine features reminiscent of both homogeneous catalysts and enzymes.


Merging organometallic chemistry with biotechnology.
