Hydrogen-activating models of hydrogenases

Hydrogenases are biological catalysts for hydrogen evolution and activation. While many model complexes of hydrogenases can catalyze the hydrogen evolution reaction, few of them can react with hydrogen. Here we review the hydrogen-activating models of hydrogenases, in particular, [NiFe]- and [FeFe]-hydrogenases. The mechanism of these reactions is described.
