Abstract

Many research groups aim to synthesize biomimetic compounds to mimic enzymatic functions. To achieve a complete mimicry, a comprehensive understanding of the structural details at the microscopic level is necessary. In this study, we conducted a structural analysis of synthetic molybdenum-dithiolene complexes and the active site structure of the NIR enzyme. Our analysis focused on the folding of the dithiolene ring and the aromaticity of the five-membered ring.
