Synthesis of a superparamagnetic ultrathin FeCO3 nanorods-enzyme bionanohybrid as novel heterogeneous catalyst

Abstract

Herein we report a straightforward synthesis of ultrathin protein-iron (II) carbonate nanorods (FeCO3-NRs) heterogeneous bionanohybrid at room temperature and aqueous media. The enzyme induced the in situ formation of well-dispersed FeCO3 NRs on a protein network. The addition of NaBH4 as reducing agent allowed getting nanowires (5x40 nm) with superparamagnetic properties. This bionanohybrid showed excellent catalytic results in reduction, oxidation and C-C bond reactions.
