Electricity-mediated biological hydrogen production.


Anaerobic bacteria have the ability to produce electricity from the oxidation of organic substrates. They also may use electricity to support chemical reactions that are energetically unfavorable. In the fermentation of sugars, hydrogen can be formed as one of the main products. However, a yield of only four hydrogen per molecule of glucose can be achieved… (More)
