Abstract:

The MURI research has been comprised of four interconnected Thrust Areas Enzyme Engineering of Bio-electrocatalysts Oxidation of Complex Biofuel Electron Transfer Fundamentals and Interface Architecture and Transport Phenomena in Bio-electrodes. The program established in summary that enzymatic biofuel cells present a viable candidate for ultimate miniaturization of power sources because it is a class of energy conversion devices that employ molecular electrocatalysts - enzymes and hierarchical surface architectures developed in the course of the advancement of bio-nano interface technology. Processes at the enzymatic biofuel cells take place on several hierarchical scales molecular-to-anoscalc enzyme catalysis, nanoscale-to-macroscale for the transport and macroscale for device integration. Enzymatic biofuel cells present a viable candidate for ultimate miniaturization because it is a class of energy conversion devices that employ molecular electrocatalysts - enzymes and hierarchical surface architectures developed in the course of the advancement of bio-nano interlace technology.
