Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Atomic hydrogen seems to react with ribonuclease in aqueous solution, not by attacking the molecule at random, but by reacting with specific amino-acids in the enzyme. It seems to have a special affinity for aromatic and sulphur-containing amino-acids, even though these may be some way from the surface of the enzyme.
