Photosynthetic microalgae as biocatalysts

The biocatalytic production of chemicals should become considerably more sustainable


A carpet of blue-green algae can literally ‘cloud’ the summer’s swimming pleasure at the lake. This is caused by a few strains of photosynthetically active microalgae, also known as cyanobacteria. Other harmless strains of cyanobacteria have great potential for biotechnological applications and ...

SMART: Facial recognition for molecular structures

Paradigm shift in interpretation of NMR spectra


An interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of California San Diego has developed a method to identify the molecular structures of natural products that is significantly faster and more accurate than existing methods. The method works like facial recognition for molecular ...

Algae with light switch

The adhesion of Chlamydomonas, a unicellular alga, to surfaces is light-dependent


Sunlight allows green algae to do more than just carry out photosynthesis.. Some unicellular algae actually use light to switch the adhesion of their flagella to surfaces on and off – a phenomenon first discovered by physicists at the Göttingen Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and ...

Synthesis of hydrogen: Enzymes assemble themselves in the test tube


Researchers from Bochum have engineered a hydrogen-producing enzyme in the test tube that works as efficiently as the original. The protein - a so-called hydrogenase from green algae - is made up of a protein scaffold and a cofactor. The latter is the reaction centre where the substances that ...

Efficient production of hydrogen by algae


Microalgae need only sunlight and water for the production of hydrogen. However, in order to make hydrogen production by microalgae economically feasible their efficiency has to be increased by 1-2 orders of magnitude. In the current issue of Energy and Environmental Science scientists from the ...
