Objective: Results arising from the ERC Starting Investigator Grant, Introducing SPRITES (202706, Aug 08-Jul 12) reveal that encapsulating synthetic molecules based upon the hydrogenase enzyme in a bio-gel material cause dramatic changes in chemical behaviour as well as significant improvements in their stability when exposed to air.
