Prof. Dr. Robert Huber A Structural Basis of Light Energy and Electron Transfer in Biology (Nobel Lecture) Angewandte Chemie International Edition in English 28
Solar energy and its role as the energetic basis of terrestial life continue to attract interest now as ever – and not only in connection with oil crises and the ozone hole! How are light energy and electrons transferred in Nature? Which chemical compounds are required for this purpose? What relationships exist between structure and function? Does the photosynthetic reaction center of bacteria correspond to that of plants? Answers to these and further questions have been found by Robert Huber, Johann Deisenhofer and Hartmut Michel through the extremely meticulous crystallization and X-ray structure analysis of pigment protein systems, for which the three authors were awarded the 1988 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
