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.

    From Cellulose to 3D Objects

    In our modern world, eliminating plastics is inconceivable. Unfortunately, they do have disadvantages, including the formation of CO2 in both production and combustion, depletion of fossil feedstocks, and growth of landfills. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Russian researchers introduce a ... more

    How To Draw Electricity from the Bloodstream

    Men build dams and huge turbines to turn the energy of waterfalls and tides into electricity. To produce hydropower on a much smaller scale, Chinese scientists have now developed a lightweight power generator based on carbon nanotube fibers suitable to convert even the energy of flowing blo ... more

    Lightweight Catalyst for Artificial Photosynthesis

    Nanochemistry meets macrostructures: Chinese scientists report the synthesis of a macroscopic aerogel from carbonitride nanomaterials which is an excellent catalyst for the water-splitting reaction under visible-light irradiation. The study adds new opportunities to the material properties ... more
