Inorganic chemistry and organometallic chemistry are growing fields, with increased interest being placed on molecules containing two bonded metals. Some of these bimetallic complexes have been shown to exhibit interesting reactivity with substrate molecules, making them particularly useful in the study of small molecule reduction. Many chemists are interested in mimicking metal-containing enzymes that exhibit this type of reactivity help scientists and engineers better understand these molecules and emulate them in economical and environmentally conscious ways.
