ABSTRACT
The article discusses a synthetic catalyst that mimics the chemical scissors responsible for methane digestion by bacteria which cuts the carbon-hydrogen bonds. Topics include the failure of previous attempts and research by Eckard Münck and colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, who successful created a synthetic di-iron catalyst able to break carbon-hydrogen, as well as strong oxygen-hydrogen, bonds.
