UniSysCat researchers revealed atomistic details on the mechanism of photosynthetic oxygen formation – just published in two articles in “Nature”

Scientists of UniSysCat and SCIoI combined experimental data and deep learning (AI) for a new structure prediction level of challenging targets

Five UniSysCat groups provide insights into the structure of intermediate Q responsible for the conversion of methane to methanol in soluble methane monooxygenase

The UniSysCat groups of R. van de Krol and R. Schomäcker propose to couple photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting with the hydrogenation of chemicals.

Five UniSysCat groups jointly investigated what happens when the orientation of a single functional group in a photocatalyst is reversed - the impact on catalytic performance is huge

The team of UniSysCat group leader Martin Oestreich developed a new synthesis route relevant for the sustainable methylation of aromatic compounds

Two joint works of 3 Unisyscat groups show the vital role of sulfur: non-innocence in the catalytic reduction of dioxygen to hydrogen peroxide & in mimicking the reactivity of ribonucleotide reductases

Four UniSysCat groups deciphered the multistep incorporation process of the catalytic NiFe(CN)2(CO) cofactor into [NiFe]-hydrogenase, paving the way for chemical reconstitution of this biocatalyst.

Understanding how drugs bind to their target is very helpful for drug development. UniSysCat researchers Sohraby and Nunes Alves reviewed the latest computational methods for predicting the kinetics of binding mechanisms.

UniSysCat researchers reveal a unique mechanism by which an NAD+-reducing [NiFe] hydrogenase becomes more oxygen tolerant, which is of interest for hydrogen energy strategies and regenerating nucleotide cofactors.
