Learning from nature: The development of an MoS2/Ta3N5 nanocomposite as a catalyst for selective aerobic oxidation by O2 activation was inspired by the nitrogenase enzymes in nature. The superior performance of this biomimetic catalyst, which shows potential for the selective oxidation of multifunctional substrates (see picture), results from the integration of Ta3N5 and MoS2 at the nanoscale and the synergistic enhancement of their activity.
