Electrochemical and infrared spectroelectrochemical methods applied to the NiFe hydrogenases of Ralstonia eutropha

Abstract:

Hydrogenases are a class of metalloenzymes which catalyse H₂ oxidation and its reverse reaction, H⁺ reduction. There is interest in investigating how H₂ as an energy carrier is cycled in biology. Hydrogenases have also been studied extensively because there are potential applications for them as catalysts for H₂ oxidation in fuel cells or H₂ production via light-driven water splitting. For these applications, the ability for the hydrogenase to work in the presence of O₂ is an important issue....
