Bio-inspired catalyst paves the way to gas-to-liquid technologies

A new bio-inspired zeolite catalyst might pave the way to small scale gas-to-liquid technologies converting natural gas to fuels and starting materials for the chemical industry. Investigating the mechanism of the selective oxidation of methane to methanol they identified a copper-oxo-cluster as the active center inside the zeolite micropores.
