Hybrid Amyloid-Based Redox Hydrogel for Bioelectrocatalytic H2 Oxidation


An artificial amyloid-based redox hydrogel was designed for mediating electron transfer between a [NiFeSe] hydrogenase and an electrode. Starting from a mutated prion-forming domain of fungal protein HET-s, a hybrid redox protein containing a single benzyl methyl viologen moiety was synthesized. This protein was able to self-assemble into structurally homogenous nanofibrils. Molecular modeling confirmed that the redox groups are aligned along the fibril axis and are tethered to its core by a long, flexible polypeptide chain that allows close encounters between the fibril-bound oxidized or reduced redox groups. Redox hydrogel films capable of immobilizing the hydrogenase under mild conditions at the surface of carbon electrodes were obtained by a simple pH jump. In this way, bioelectrodes for the electrocatalytic oxidation of H2 were fabricated that afforded catalytic current densities of up to 270 μA cm−2, with an overpotential of 0.33 V, under quiescent conditions at 45 °C.
