Escherichia coli produces at least three [NiFe] hydrogenases (Hyd-1, Hyd-2 and Hyd-3). Hyd-1 and Hyd-2 are membrane-bound respiratory isoenzymes with their catalytic subunits exposed to the periplasmic side of the membrane. Hyd-3 is part of the cytoplasmically oriented formate hydrogenlyase complex. In this work the involvement of each of these hydrogenases(More)
Microbial precipitation of gold was achieved using Escherichia coli and Desulfovibrio desulfuricans provided with H2 as the electron donor. No precipitation was observed using H2 alone or with heat-killed cells. Reduction of aqueous AuIII ions by both strains was demonstrated at pH 7 using 2 mM HAuCl4 solution and the concept was successfully applied to(More)
Bio-manufacturing of nano-scale palladium was achieved via enzymatically-mediated deposition of Pd from solution using Desulfovibrio desulfuricans, Escherichia coli and Cupriavidus metallidurans. Dried ‘Bio-Pd’ materials were sintered, applied onto carbon papers and tested as anodes in a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell for power production. At a(More)
The versatility and reaction specificity of a novel bioinorganic catalyst is demonstrated in various reactions. Palladized cells (bioPd) of the sulphate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio desulfuricans showed an increased product selectivity and a catalytic activity comparable to a commercial Pd catalyst in several industrially relevant hydrogenations and(More)
A Rhodobacter sphaeroides-supported dried, ground palladium catalyst ("Rs-Pd(0)") was compared with a Desulfovibrio desulfuricans-supported catalyst ("Dd-Pd(0)") and with unsupported palladium metal particles made by reduction under H2 ("Chem-Pd(0)"). Cell surface-located clusters of Pd(0) nanoparticles were detected on both D. desulfuricans and R.(More)
The environmentally prevalent polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) #47 and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) #28 and #118 were challenged for 24 hours with a novel biomass-supported Pd catalyst (Bio-Pd(0)). Analysis of the products via GC-MS revealed the Bio-Pd(0) to cause the challenged compounds to undergo stepwise dehalogenation with preferential loss of(More)
We report a novel biochemical method based on the sacrificial hydrogen strategy to synthesize bimetallic gold (Au)-palladium (Pd) nanoparticles (NPs) with a core/shell configuration. The ability of Escherichia coli cells supplied with H(2) as electron donor to rapidly precipitate Pd(II) ions from solution is used to promote the reduction of soluble Au(III).(More)
The use of bacterial flagella as templates for the immobilization of Pd and Au nanoparticles is described. Complete coverage of D. desulfuricans flagellar filaments by Pd(0) nanoparticles was obtained via the H(2)-mediated reduction of Pd(NH3)4]Cl2 but similar results were not obtained using HAuCl4. The introduction of additional cysteine-derived thiol(More)
The biomanufacture of two types of platinum bionanoparticle (bioNP) using Escherichia coli MC4100(1% and 20% by mass metal loading) together with a method for both liberating the nanoparticles (NPs) from the bacterial layer and their subsequent critical cleaning is reported. The possibility of an enantiomeric excess of chiral kink sites forming on the(More)
