Biophysicists have found evidence for the design of so-called biomimetic catalysts. These chemical complexes that mimic biological processes are necessary in the production of hydrogen gas (H2) as a climate-neutral fuel. In collaboration with scientists from Bochum and Linz, the team of Dr. Sven Stripp managed to observe the transfer of protons in an enzyme reaction in a controlled experiment.
The findings were published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).
