Abstract

X-ray diffraction data demonstrate that the adduct formed upon the reaction of dirhodium(II,II) tetraacetate with RNase A reacts with imidazole, leading to the formation of an unexpected product with the imidazole that binds the dirhodium center at an equatorial site rather than an axial site. The origin of this result has been dissected using quantum-chemical calculations.
