Molecular computing: paths to chemical Turing machines

In this perspective, we highlight some of the recent advances in the development of molecular and biomolecular systems for performing logic operations and computing. We also present a blueprint of a chemical Turing machine using a processive catalytic approach.

Alkene hydrogenation activity of enoate reductases for an environmentally benign biosynthesis of adipic acid

We demonstrate the first enzymatic hydrogenation of 2-hexenedioic acid and muconic acid to adipic acid using enoate reductases (ERs).

Hydrolysis of woody biomass by a biomass-derived reusable heterogeneous catalyst

A carbon catalyst prepared by air oxidation of woody biomass hydrolyses woody biomass, and the reaction residue is transformed back to the catalyst by the same air oxidation method.

Palladium-catalyzed reductive coupling of phenols with anilines and amines: efficient conversion of phenolic lignin model monomers and analogues to cyclohexylamines

A highly efficient Pd-catalyzed direct coupling of phenolic lignin model monomers and analogues with anilines to give cyclohexylamines using sodium formate as hydrogen donor is described.

Using the gravitational energy of water to generate power by separation of charge at interfaces

When water droplets (e.g., from rain) flow down a solid surface due to gravity, they can generate power.
