New method to promote biofilm formation and increase efficiency of biocatalysis

Researchers identified synthetic polymers that induce biofilm formation in E. coli, a bacterium commonly used in biocatalysis


Birmingham scientists have revealed a new method to increase efficiency in biocatalysis, in a paper published in Materials Horizons. Biocatalysis uses enzymes, cells or microbes to catalyse chemical reactions, and is used in settings such as the food and chemical industries to make products that ...

Single-atom tractor beams power chemical catalysis

Unlocking possible new ways to make light act powerfully and drive chemical transformations


By trapping light into tiny gaps only a few atoms wide, a team from the NanoPhotonics Centre has magnified optical forces a thousand-fold, strong enough to force atoms into positions that drive chemical reactions more efficiently. “We found a new way to beef up the forces from light, enough to ...

Powering a microprocessor by photosynthesis

Algae-powered computing: Scientists create reliable and renewable biological photovoltaic cell


Researchers have used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power a microprocessor continuously for a year - and counting - using nothing but ambient light and water. Their system has potential as a reliable and renewable way to power small devices. The system, comparable in size to an AA ...
