Researchers successfully produce ammonia from ambient nitrogen via a catalyst [Registered]

“This is a big-deal reaction, turning nitrogen into ammonia under ambient conditions,” said the lead researcher Mercouri G. Kanatzidis. “Scientists have been fascinated by the biological enzyme nitrogenase, which catalyzes the reaction in nature, for more than 60 years. Now we have created a successful mimic of nature’s process.”
