Incorporating enzymatic features (controlled substrate and product movement, redox potentials and dynamics) into molecular catalysts may be essential to attain similar reactivity and control.  We utilize peptides to modulate the reactivity of homogeneous catalysts to introduce some of these features to enhance catalytic activity.
