Microorganisms as Hydrogen and Hydrogenase Producers

  • I. N. Gogotov

Abstract

Great attention has been paid recently to the investigation of microorganisms transforming light energy with the evolution of molecular hydrogen (1,2). However, the efficiency of hydrogen production by microorganisms in vivo is not usually high and depends on a number of factors (2). Therefore, for practical purposes it is probably necessary to form artificial model systems, which produce hydrogen by photodecomposition of water with much higher efficiency and which have high stability with respect to a number of factors. The functional stability of such systems will depend primarily on the stability of hydrogenase to the oxygen produced during photosynthesis and to the temperature. In this paper an attempt has been made to analyze recent literature and our own data about the efficiency and mechanism of hydrogen production and the properties of the enzymes that participate in hydrogen production.
