Enhanced microbes as alternative green energy sources

The demand for energy is growing and so is the demand for alternative energy solutions, which includes living sources of electricity. AU researchers have in collaboration with an international team created microbial energy cells and shows a method for improving the efficiency of bioelectrical systems.

Controlling the conversion of CO2 with new catalysts

Converting CO2 into more useful products offers an interesting strategy to mitigate climate issues while producing value added chemicals. Researchers from the Carbon Dioxide Activation Center (CADIAC) have discovered how the ligand scaffold around a manganese catalyst can be modified to control the selectivity of the products generated via…
