Title: Bioinspired Design and Directed Evolution of Iron Containing Enzymes for Green Synthetic Processes and Bioremediation
The Leland Stanford Jr. University students are studying how iron containing enzymes work in biological systems so they could be applied towards green synthesis and bioremediation. Their goal is to create catalysts (natural or synthetic) that are efficient, economically-viable and contribute a minimal amount of pollution to the environment.
