Literature Review


Rosenbaum, Miriam (2005)


‘Utilizing the Green Alga C.reinhardtii for
Microbial Electricity Generation”



Direct electricity generation from microbial photosynthetic activity


Oxidative depletion of hydrogen, photosynthetically produced by
C.reinahrdtii under sulfur deprived conditions, by polymer coated electro
catalytic electrodes

Literature Review


Melis, Anastasios (2000)


“Sustained Photobiological Hydrogen Gas
Production upon Reversible Inactivation of
oxygen Evolution in C.reinhardtii”




Method circumvents the severe oxygen sensitivity of the
reversible hydrogenase by temporarily separating photosynthetic
oxygen evolution and carbon dioxide accumulation

Literature Review


Posewitz, Matthew C. (2004)


“Hydrogen Photoproduction is Attenuated
by Disruption of an Isoamylase Gene in
C.reinhardtii”


STA7 is an isoamylase gene in C.reinahrdtii, which is important for
starch accumulation and metabolism, which plays an important role in
hydrogen photoproduction

Literature Review


Logan, Bruce E. (2006)


“Using Algae and other Biomass for
Hydrogen Production in a Modified
Microbial Fuel Cell”


A small voltage was applied (.25 V) to the algae, which generated pure
hydrogen gas at the cathode

Do Ability


C.reinhardtii: Can be grown in the lab as
done in previous years


Light Intensities: Different bulbs can be
purchased and used in the school lights


Microbial Fuel Cell: A simple fuel cell is
owned by the school
