  1. New Materials Enable Hydrogen SynthesisResearchers at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have discovered an efficient process for hydrogen biocatalysis. They developed semi-synthetic hydrogenases, hydrogen-generating enzymes, by adding the protein’s biological precursor to a chemically synthesized inactive iron complex. From these two components, the biological catalyst formed spontaneously in a test tube.“Extracting hydrogenases from living cells is highly difficult,” says Prof. Thomas Happe, head of the work group Photobiotechnology at the RUB. “Therefore, their industrial application has always been a long way off. Now, we have made a decisive step towards the generation of bio-based materials.”Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/08/new-materials-enable-hydrogen-synthesis
