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.

    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

    Progress toward artificial tissue?

    For modern implants and the growth of artificial tissue and organs, it is important to generate materials with characteristics that closely emulate nature. However, the tissue in our bodies has a combination of traits that are very hard to recreate in synthetic materials: It is both soft an ... more

    Biomass as a source of raw materials

    For the protection of the environment, and because of the limited amount of fossil fuels available, renewable resources, such as specially cultivated plants, wood scraps, and other plant waste, are becoming the focus of considerable attention. Processes such as pyrolysis or liquefaction all ... more
