Catalytic olefin metathesis has quickly emerged as one of the most often-used transformations in modern chemical synthesis. One class of catalysts that has led the way to this significant development are the high-oxidation-state alkylidene complexes of molybdenum. In this review...

Polyoxometalates (POM) have a rich and promising photochemical behavior. Upon illumination at the O M CT band (i.e., in UV and near-visible area) become powerful oxidizing reagents able to oxidize various organic compounds. In the process POM undergo stepwise reduction...

Mononuclear molybdenum and tungsten are found in the active site of a diverse group of enzymes that, in general, catalyze oxygen atom transfer reactions. Enzymes of the xanthine oxidase family are the best-characterized mononuclear Mo-containing enzymes. Several 3D structures of...

Tungsten and tungsten compounds are considered toxicologically relatively safe. Concern regarding the potential health and environmental effects of depleted uranium and lead in military applications has lead many countries to explore the possibility of applying toxicologically safer metals. Heavy metal...
