Prof Peter Nixon

Dr Peter Nixon is Professor of Biochemistry at Imperial College London and has been a principle collaborator in Algae Printing and related projects. The Nixon group is studying various aspects of solar energy conversion by chloroplasts and cyanobacteria. Projects include:

Light energy harvested by chlorophyll and other pigments drove the energetically unfavourable synthesis of carbohydrate molecules (CH2O)n from the simpler carbon dioxide (CO²) and water (H2O) molecules with the concomitant liberation of oxygen (O²) into the atmosphere (Wobbe et al. 2016) – Peter Nixon
