There has been considerable interest in metal chelates that will complex with dioxygen. These chelates are of interest to biochemists because they provide a comparison to the biological dioxygen carriers, hemoglobin and hemocyanin, and show what characteristics are crucial to enzymes that combine with dioxygen.
