  • Mimicking nature, scientists can now extend redox potentials

    Chemistry graduate students Tiffany Hopper and Nick Marshall and professor Yi Lu have mimicked nature in their development of tailor-made proteins.

      Tuning redox potentials of a protein for energy conversions. A combination of water-repelling hydrophobicity (shown in red sphere) and hydrogen bonding interactions (shown in dotted orange lines) can fine-tune the redox potential of copper ion (shown in blue) in azurin in a wide range.
