The molecular details behind hydrogen evolution during fermentation are reviewed. Hydrogen is evolved by hydrogenase, a class of enzymes containing complex metallo-centers. In most cases, sugars are degraded to pyruvate which in turn is converted to a variety of fermentation products. Various pathways leading to fermentative hydrogen generation are outlined and discussed. Thermophilic fermentations have higher yields than mesophilic ones. Yields are thought to be limited to 4H2 per glucose… CONTINUE READING
