This commentary assesses the evidence for valence electron delocalization in dinuclear and polynuclear iron-sulfur clusters. We outline a simple Hamiltonian model that contains the important physical interactions and briefly review the experimental and computational tools that can be used to distinguish between valence electron delocalization and electron trapping and to assess likely magnitudes of resonance interactions.
