The synthesis of analogues of the active sites of the hydrogenases [1-3] may presage the design of new materials for hydrogen production, storage and utilisation in fuel cells or catalysis viz. replacing platinum or other precious metals [4-6]. Emerging synthetic, structural and mechanistic chemistry, together with studies of surface modification, electrochemistry and photoelectrochemistry and will be addressed.
