Wrapping Microbes With Graphene Nano-Sheets For Improved Bioelectricity Production

It is well known that the eel fish can release powerful electric charges of up to 650 volts which can kill its prey. It is scary to all of us, but how about electroactive microorganisms? Electroactive microorganisms are those organisms that can produce bioelectricity. They contain these conductive proteins on the surface of the cell wall or they can produce mediators that can help in transferring the electrons. These organisms have potential applications for converting the wastes to bioelectricity, biohydrogen,...
