Researchers at the Chemistry and Biology of Metals laboratory are working on artificial metalloenzymes, one of which is a hydride composed of the NikA protein and complexes of iron or ruthenium. In order to improve their properties, they managed to stabilize the crystals of NikA by crosslinking. This resulting solid hybrid catalyst makes it possible to stabilize the artificial catalytic site within the protein crystal.
