Jolly green MOF: confinement and photoactivation of photosystem I in a metal–organic framework

Photosystem I (PSI) is a potential candidate for integration into bio-hybrid solar energy harvesting devices, but orchestrating such integration rests on rationally designed 3D architectures that can organize and stabilize PSI in the myriad of harsh conditions in which it needs to function. This study reveals the optical response and photoactive properties of PSI encapsulated in a highly stable nanoporous metal organic framework (MOF).

This research is published in the journal Nanoscale Advances.
