NREL Scientists Upend Century-Old Ammonia Production Method - News Feature | NREL

NREL Scientists Upend Century-Old Ammonia Production Method July 26, 2017 NREL researchers Katherine Brown and Paul King stand next to an anaerobic glove box used to keep sensitive samples in an air-free environment. They demonstrated that cadmium sulfide (CdS) nanocrystals can be used to harvest light, turning the energy from that light into electrons with sufficient potential to propel the reduction of N2 into ammonia, which takes place within the nitrogenase molybdenum iron (MoFe) protein. Photo by Dennis Schroeder Paul King and Katherine Brown wanted answers. To produce ammonia from nitrogen, could they use a biomolecular reaction similar to one that boosts the production of hydrogen from water? "That was the genesis of the idea," said King, who works in the Biosciences Center at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The answer, they disc...
