Is cisplatin the main compound we should know for this category of examples?

Cisplatin is one biological example of how coordination compounds are relevant. But I believe we should also know the biological functions of Cr, Fe, Co, Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn. The outline for this unit mentions knowing that Co functions in vitamin B12 specifically.

There are more examples, but this one was talked about heavily in class and at various review sessions.

Yes, cisplatin is the main compound. I believe we're supposed to know how it functions through its structure as well as possibly knowing how to draw it.

Transplatin may also be useful to know.

What is the biological function of vitamin B12?

cisplatin is the only relevant chemotherapy drug we need to know. However, there are other biological examples we should know for the final
