Professor Elliott Published in Nature Communications: Enzymatic Discovery Cools a ‘Hot’ Intermediary
Enzymatic Discovery Cools a ‘Hot’ Intermediary In the world around us enzymes perform the wizardry of allowing reactions that should occur, to do so in a timely fashion. Enzymes that transform hydrogen peroxide often generate a highly reactive, ‘hot’ intermediate along the way, which will transform another molecule in a startling feat of chemistry. In […]
