Hydrogen Formation by the Biophotolysis of Water Via Glycolate and Formate

  • Lester O. Krampitz
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series


I am substituting for Professor H. G. Wood who was scheduled to chair this session but because of last minute commitments was unable to attend this meeting. Knowing his interests in the theme of this symposium I am sure he would have opened the session with a few remarks about some of the interesting research he is doing in the field of microbial metabolism. With your permission I will utilize some of his time to report some results we have obtained on the biophotolysis of water with the formation of hydrogen.
