Prospects for new nitrogen fixation processes

Prospects for new nitrogen fixation processes

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London B Biological Sciences 281(980): 243-248

Chemists have long tried to emulate the apparently easy fixation of N [by soil microbes] which takes place in biological systems, and during the past 15 yr they have uncovered a number of new and unexpected reactions. Some of these might form the basis of new processes for N fixation [for agronomic soil fertility application], but at this stage of development none appears likely to compete with existing processes. Nevertheless, the new reactions indicate some exciting possibilities and some may demonstrate the chemistry which lies at the basis of N fixation by bacteria.
