One of the most striking features in many dinuclear metalloenzymes is the different coordination environments for the two metal centers. Nevertheless most of the reported enzyme mimics which are small molecule analogues for the active sites of these complicated enzymes, are based on symmetric dinucleating ligands. These ligands generally result in the formation of dinuclear coordination complexes with identical coordination environments for the metal centers. However, a limited number of non-symmetric dinuclear complexes is known to be formed by spontaneous self-assembly in solution.
