Knallgasbakterien – neue Synthesewege mit Cupriavidus necator
Climate change and the finite nature of fossil fuels raise the need for the fixation of CO2 and conversion into traditionally petroleum-derived chemicals. With Cupriavidus necator as an easily genetically modifiable biocatalyst, a wide range of products, e. g. polymers, platform chemicals, biofuels, and terpenes, can be accessed. The wide range of applications as well as a prominent example of electrochemical α-humulene production from CO2 are promising developments towards a bio-based society.
