Biological Electron Transfer & Catalysis (BETCy) Energy Frontier Research Center

Project: Research project

Description

The team lead by Anne Katherine Jones at ASU has considerable experience with direct electrochemical characterization of multicofactor-containing redox enzymes including both hydrogenases and bifurcating enzymes. The ASU team will lead direct electrochemical mechanistic studies of BETCy II enzymes including bifurcating and non-bifurcating enzymes. Goals will be to provide electrochemical data complementary to the spectroscopic studies of collaborating institutions to (1) delineate the physical and electronic determinants of organic and metallocenter bifurcating sites and (2) define mechanisms that control and limit electron transfer catalysis.
