Methanobactin: a remarkable new copper-harvesting molecule with potential environmental impact from methane-eating bacteria. This molecule is being studied collaboratively by UW-EC student research groups from Drs. McEllistrem, Hartsel, Gallagher, Chemistry 455 students and Dr Alan Dispirito of Iowa State University.  This family of spectra shows GOLD nanoparticles being created from Au(III) ions by methanobactin. Alchemy anyone?

See numerous Methanobactin papers here (including our own!)
