Recombinant oxalate decarboxylase: enhancement of a hybrid catalytic cascade for the complete electro-oxidation of glycerol

Author affiliations

Abstract

The complete electro-oxidation of glycerol to CO2 is performed through an oxidation cascade using a hybrid catalytic system combining a recombinant enzyme, oxalate decarboxylase from Bacillus subtilis, and an organic oxidation catalyst, 4-amino-TEMPO. This system is capable of electrochemically oxidizing glycerol at a carbon electrode collecting all 14 electrons per molecule.
