Bacterial Enzyme Converts CO2 Into Carbon Compounds 20x Faster Than Photosynthesis

[ad_1] Artist interpretation of the enzyme Credit: SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Researchers discover that a spot of molecular glue and a timely twist help a bacterial enzyme convert carbon dioxide into carbon compounds 20 times faster than plant enzymes do during photosynthesis. The results stand to accelerate progress toward converting carbon dioxide into a variety […]

New Method Allows Scientists To Synthesize Crystals in Ways Not Found in Nature

[ad_1] This triple-double gyroid is a new colloidal crystal structure that has never been found in nature or synthesized before. The translucent red/green/blue balls show the positions of programmable atom equivalents (PAEs), while the dark grey balls and sticks show locations of electron equivalents (EEs).
