The importance of developing metal complexes with pronounced catalase-like activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

This critical survey reveals that in contrast with the large advances in the development of synthetic catalysts for decomposition of superoxide anion radical and peroxynitrite, most metal complexes reported until recently perform very poor when it comes to disproportionation of hydrogen peroxide, the reaction catalyzed by enzymes of the catalase family.
