A research team from Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the University of Oxford have gained new insights into the function of hydrogen-producing enzymes.
Until now, in hydrogenase enzymes, the transport of protons and electrons have been considered to be separate, however, the team has now suggested that coupling could be the key to success.
Hydrogenases can convert hydrogen just as efficiently as expensive platinum catalysts. In order to make them usable for biotechnological applications, the researchers and investigating how they work in detail.
