MCD and EPR probing of the nitrogenase M cluster precursors electron spins dynamics suggests new mechanisms of enzymes biosynthesis and substrate binding. Additional ongoing ultrafast electron-scale investigations are carried out to get better understanding of such mechanisms.
Novel, cost-efficient bulk modified thiol-acrylate microfluidic materials with wide range of highly stable hydrophilic surfaces (11° to 85°) prepared without expensive and sophisticated techniques within less than 24 h at room temperature and ambient pressure.
Highly toxic Cr(VI) can be reduced to benign Cr(III) in water on unmodified and inexpensive carbon electrodes. The slow step over a wide range of pH is identified, which will help develop new energy-efficient water purification technologies.
