Iron VI

Chemists forge a new form of iron. ‘An international team of chemists has discovered a new and unexpected form of iron, a finding that adds to the fundamental understanding of an element that is among the most abundant on Earth and that, in nature, is an essential catalyst for life. “We have synthesized something totally new that nobody has imagined could exist, and something which adds greatly to our understanding of fundamental iron chemistry,” says John F. Berry, an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow at Germany’s Max-Planck Institute for Bioinorganic Chemistry in Mulheim.’
