O2 stable hydrogenases for applications
A team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion and the MPI für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr have succeeded in optimizing naturally occurring catalysts (hydrogenases) for application.
Hydrogen as an energy vector
Hydrogen gas (H2) has been propos ... more
Potential for a green energy economy based on hydrogen
Hydrogenases are enzymes capable of making hydrogen gas (H2) using protons from water, a reaction with relevance to a potential future green energy economy based on H2.
Bacteria containing these enzymes often produce H2 as a waste product during sugar metabolism in the absence of oxygen. M ... more
