Synthesis and enzymatic photo-activity of an O2 tolerant hydrogenase–CdSe@CdS quantum rod bioconjugate

Author affiliations

Abstract

This communication reports on the preparation of stable and photo-active nano-heterostructures composed of O2 tolerant [NiFe] hydrogenase extracted from the Aquifex aeolicus bacterium grafted onto hydrophilic CdSe/CdS quantum rods in view of the development of H2/O2 biofuel cells. The resulting complex is efficient towards H2 oxidation, displays good stability and new photosensitive properties.
