Why?

This was one of the last crystal structures collected from my graduate work in the Grapperhaus group at UofL. We worked really hard to show that this compound had a connection to the NiSOD studies going on at the time, finally getting it published in Inorg. Chem. in 2009. The compound also had some interesting properties relating to water channels that have never gotten published. It is my hope that my current small research group will eventually reconnect with this research someday!—Chris Mullins
