Biological functions of coordinate compounds

Postby Corryn Doll » Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:25 am

The book says that much research focuses around coordinate compounds "...partly because they participate in many biological reactions," but doesn"t exactly describe the biological functions of those naturally occurring coordinate compounds. So what are some of the biological functions of naturally occurring coordinate compounds?

Proteins often contain transition metals which form coordinated bonds.
