A carbon nanotube structured biomimetic catalyst for polysaccharide degradation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A unique artificial catalyst that mimics the structure of active sites in real enzymes using functionalized carbon nanotubes is presented. This concept will allow for the potential construction of a library of biomimetic catalysts for enzyme active centers, for which the structure–catalysis relationships are well defined.
