(Chemical Equation Presented) Super model: Diiron dithiolates exist in nature in [FeFe]-hydrogenase, for the purpose of making or oxidizing molecular hydrogen. Evidence for how H2 interacts with diiron complexes has been realized using model diiron dithiolato carbonyl complexes. The pathway for this interaction has been elucidated computationally as well as synthetically, by using silanes in place of H2.
