Abstract : Biological systems can inspire to make new hybrid materials defined at the molecular level. We propose a novel way to make hybrid catalyst composed of inorganic nanomaterials and peptides. The specific peptides enable the assembly and synthesis of nanomaterials and enhance the catalytic activity synergistically. The focus of this proposed works is how to interface the peptide and inorganic materials for the hybrid materials. As a proof of concept, we aim to apply these new hybrid materials for oxidation reaction with the inspiration from the natural enzyme such as photosystem. Herein, we resolved fundamental questions related to protein/peptide folding structure and developed new bio-inspired organic-inorganic hybrid materials.
