Abstract: The factors that control the oxidation of metals in bimetallic complexes are investigated in relation to the possibility of developing one-site addition two-metal oxidation reactions such as those that occur in the respiratory protein,hemerythrin. It is shown that the behavior of bimetallic complexes is not represented by the sum of the analogous monometallic parts because of metal and ligand interactions.
