Funktionalisierung von Methan in anaeroben Mikroorganismen

Mehr als nur ein Weg: Einige strikt anaerobe Bakterien können auf Methan und Nitrit unter Bildung von CO2 und N2 wachsen. Kürzlich publizierte Versuche sprechen für die Beteiligung einer NO‐Dismutase und einer partikulären Methan‐Monooxygenase (pMMO) an der Umsetzung. Beide Enzyme fehlen in Mikroorganismen, die die Oxidation von Methan mit Sulfat katalysieren. Es gibt also mindestens zwei Wege, anaerob Methan als Energiequelle zu verwenden.

    Hidden chirality

    The preparation of chiral compounds as intermediates in drug synthesis is one of the most important targets in synthetic organic chemistry. Japanese scientists have now shown that the autocatalytic preparation of a chiral intermediate can be triggered by a compound bearing hidden chirality, ... more

    Recharging on stable, amorphous silicon

    Next-generation anodes for lithium ion batteries will probably no longer be made of graphite. Silicon, which is a related material, can provide a much higher capacity than graphite, but its crystallinity poses problems. Chinese scientists have introduced a porous silicon form that is amorph ... more

    Algae for your fuel tank

    The available amount of fossil fuels is limited and their combustion in vehicle motors increases atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. The generation of fuels from biomass as an alternative is on the rise. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Johannes A. Lercher and his team at the Technische Uni ... more
