METAL SULFUR CLUSTERS, ESPECIALLY IRON SULFUR CLUSTERS ARE UBIQUITOUS
CO-FACTORS IN BIOCHEMISTRY. MIKE RUSSELL HAS POINTED OUT THE CLOSE
STRUCTURAL SIMILARITY BETWEEN CUBOID IRON-SULFUR CLUSTERS AND THE NATURALLY
OCCURING METAL SULFIDE MINERAL GREIGITE. BIOMIMETIC CATALYSIS OF A RANGE OF
CHEMICAL PROCESSES, SUCH AS REACTIONS OF CARBON AND NITROGEN FIXATION, BY
METAL SULFIDES HAS REINFORCED THE IMPORTANCE OF THE RELATIONSHIP OF METAL
SULFIDE MINERALS TO BIOLOGICAL CATALYSIS.
