Enzymatic photosynthesis of formate from carbon dioxide coupled with highly efficient photoelectrochemical regeneration of nicotinamide cofactors

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present the photoelectrochemical (PEC) regeneration of nicotinamide cofactors (NADH) coupled with the enzymatic synthesis of formate from CO2 towards mimicking natural photosynthesis. The water oxidation-driven PEC platform exhibited high yield and the rate of NADH regeneration was compared to many other homogeneous, photochemical systems. We successfully coupled solar-assisted NADH reduction with enzymatic CO2 reduction to formate under continuous CO2 injection.
