Electron Transfer Mechanisms in Nanomaterials-Incorporated Metalloprotein-Films on Electrodes
Our second approach is based on conjugating redox-proteins with magnetic nanomaterials to immobilize on polymer coated electrodes and understand the direct electrochemical properties. Our results provide insights with regard to the direct electron transfer rates, catalytic efficiency, biological long-range electron hopping, and through-bond coupled hopping mechanism on the investigated nanomaterial-redox protein electrodes. We envisage that our findings will aid in designing viable, scalable bioreactors for green synthesis, superior biosensors, and understanding the biological electron transfer processes.
