Capture of Ni(II), Cu(I) and Z(II) by thiolate sulfurs of an N2S2Ni complex: a role for a metallothiolate ligand in the acetyl-coenzyme A synthase active site. Academic Article uri icon


  • The metal binding affinity of an (N2S2)Ni bridging metallothiolate ligand (Zn2+ < Ni2+ < Cu+) gives precedent for the observed heterogeneity in ACS/CODH.
