Chemists settle longstanding debate on how methane is made biologically

The enzyme ultimately responsible for biological methane production, methyl-coenzyme M reductase, has an ambiguous mechanism because it involves difficult-to-isolate reaction intermediates. Wongnate et al. used spectroscopic and kinetic methods to trap the key intermediates in the enzyme active site. Experimental and computational methods
