Metal-catalysed activation of oxygen in biology is achieved using either copper or iron. In the case of iron, this includes the heme-containing enzymes which activate oxygen.
Crystallography and Functional Evolution of Atomically Thin Confined Nanowires
Dr J Sloan, Dr J Lloyd-Hughes
15 February 2019
Encapsulated nanowires can be as small as a single atom in width and are the smallest one-dimensional materials. Their simplicity and robustness makes them ideal platforms for the study of fundamental properties of matter, such as phase transformations and the energetics of confined crystal structure formation.
