The Center for Metals in Biocatalysis fosters interactions among the various groups at the University  who are interested in metal ions and their roles in biocatalysis. Research activities include: biodegradation of aliphatic and aromatic compounds, mechanisms of biological alkane oxidations by nonheme iron and copper centers, oxygen activation, nitrogen oxide metabolism, synthesis and design of structural and functional models of metalloenzymes, DNA cleavage, metalloprotein crystallography, and spectroelectrochemistry.
