The value of enzymes in solar fuels research – efficient electrocatalysts through evolution

Abstract:

The reasons for using enzymes as tools for solar fuels research are discussed. Many oxidoreductases, including components of membrane-bound electron-transfer chains in living organisms, are extremely active when directly attached to an electrode, at which they display their inherent catalytic activity as electrical current. Electrocatalytic voltammograms, which show the rate of electron flow at steady-state, provide direct information on enzyme efficiency with regard to optimising use of avai...
