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.

    Water-Soluble Warped Nanographene

    Graphene and its nano-sized little sibling, nanographene, are well known for their remarkable photoelectronic properties. However, biomedical applications are hampered by the insolubility of the materials, especially in water. A Japanese team of scientists has now introduced substituted “wa ... more

    The Making of Biorelevant Nanomaterials

    The interactions of biological macromolecules such as nucleic acids, proteins, and polysaccharide–protein conjugates can be mimicked by artificial polyelectrolytes. Such synthetic polyionic complexes are expected to serve as novel platforms to stabilize and deliver drugs, proteins, or nucle ... more

    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
