Title: Engineered Enzymes and Bioinspired Catalysts for Energy Conversion

Abstract

Metalloenzymes play critical roles in the environment by catalyzing redox reactions in biogeochemical cycles. The elucidation of structure–function relationships in these biocatalysts has provided a foundation for the development of bioinspired catalysts for fuel production and small-molecule activation. In this Perspective, we highlight developments in engineered biomolecular and bioinspired catalysts for the reduction of H +, O 2, and CO 2 and for the oxidation of H 2 and H 2O. The roles of proton transfers and second-sphere interactions in particular are highlighted.
