Efficient Electrochemical CO2/CO Interconversion by an Engineered Carbon Monoxide Dehydrogenase on a Gas-Diffusion Carbon Nanotube-Based Bioelectrode

Abstract

Carbon monoxide dehydrogenase catalyzes the reversible oxidation of CO to CO2. The monofunctional enzyme from Rhodospirillum rubrum (RrCODH) has been extensively characterized in the past, although its use and investigation by bioelectrochemistry have been limited. Here, we developed a heterologous system yielding a highly stable and active recombinant RrCODH in one-step purification, with CO oxidation activity reaching a maximum of 26 500 U.mg(-1), making RrCODH the most active CODH under ambient conditions described so far. Electron paramagnetic resonance was used to precisely characterize the recombinant RrCODH, demonstrating the integrity of the active site. Selective CO2/CO interconversion with maximum turnover frequencies of 150 s(-1) for CO oxidation (1.5 mA cm(-2) at 250 mV overpotential) and 420 s(-1) for CO2 reduction (4.2 mA cm(-2) at 180 mV overpotential) is catalyzed by the recombinant RrCODH immobilized on MWCNT electrodes modified with 1-pyrenebutyric acid adamantyl amide (MWCNTADA), either in a classic three-electrode cell or in specifically designed CO2/CO-diffusing electrodes. This functional device is stable for hours with a turnover number of at least 800 000. The performances of recombinant RrCODH-modified MWCNTADA are close to the best metal-based and molecular-based catalysts. These results greatly increase the benchmark for bioelectrocatalysis of reversible CO2 conversion.
