MoFe Catalysis Figure

New publication

Sept. 21, 2020

In a new publication in ACS Catalysis Brown et al demonstrate control, via photo-excitation rate, of MoFe protein's catalytic product distribution when coupled to light-absorbing CdS QDs. This work, led by our collaborators at NREL, enables tuning of the catalytic system bias toward desirable ammonia production over other competitive processes.
