  • On the Track of Nitrogenase

    Another step has been taken towards explaining the molecular mechanisms of biological fixation of nitrogen by the enzyme nitrogenase: Dr. Daniel Sippel from Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle’s work group at the Institute of Biochemistry of the University of Freiburg has shown that the iron-vanadium cofactor ( more

  • Flipping the switch on ammonia production

    Nearly a century ago, German chemist Fritz Haber won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for a process to generate ammonia from hydrogen and nitrogen gases. The process, still in use today, ushered in a revolution in agriculture, but now consumes around one percent of the world's energy to achieve the high more

  • A cooperative way to make ammonia

    Nitrogen is essential for life, but nature's main source of nitrogen is the gas found in our atmosphere -- a gas that does not react easily with other elements. Some specialized bacteria turn the air's nitrogen molecules into ammonia so that it can be used to make proteins -- the building blocks, ma more

Nitrogen fixation

Nitrogen fixation Nitrogen fixation is the process by which nitrogen is taken from its natural, relatively inert molecular form (N2) in the atmosphere and converted into nitrogen compounds (such as, notably, ammonia , nitrate and nitrogen diox ... more
