Chemists shows hemoprotein catalysis is way more complicated than we thought

Chemists at Stevens Institute of Technology, along with collaborators, discovered that hemoprotein-catalyzed reactions are more complex than previously thought. While attempting a cyclopropanation reaction, they found unexpected chemical pathways, leading to a green compound instead of the expected product. Advanced computational and experimental techniques revealed multiple competing pathways and rare side-reactions. This complexity highlights the importance of considering all possible reactions and using diverse methods to fully understand chemical processes.
