Encaged Metal Complexes

  • Bagger, Sven, (Project Manager)
  • Christensen, Hans Erik Mølager, (Project Participant)


At a simplistic level, metal complexes encapsulated in e.g. a zeolite may be considered as inorganic analogues of natural metallo-enzymes, with the zeolite framework representing a rigid protein mantle. The present project is focused on the question:
How does the structure and reactivity of a metal complex species confined in a porous silica framework compare with those of the same species in a protein matrix ?
