The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Methane-digesting Enzyme

Scientists used X-rays at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory to characterize the first enzyme in the pathway that bacteria use to convert methane to methanol. This important breakthrough is helping researchers improve the synthesis of methanol—a process that would make natural gas a viable energy alternative to petroleum.
