'On Your Mark, Get Set' Neutrons Run Enzyme’s Reactivity for Better Biofuel Production

16-G01779_ODell_web.png

Producing biofuels like ethanol from plant materials requires various enzymes to break down the cellulosic fibers. Researchers from ORNL and NC State used neutrons to identify the specifics of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction that could significantly reduce the total amount of enzymes used, improving production processes and lowering costs.
