Empirical Mechanomeric Development and Artificial Photosynthesis of Fuels

Enzymes such as photosynthetic enzymes photosynthesizing octane can easily be developed empirically[1].

Basically, such development would involve matriciating (chromatographically two-dimensionally arraying) replicated random mechanomers (functional copolymers) of some artificial class analogous to proteins (say, polyesters or polysulfonamides), exposing the replicated random mechanomer matrix so produced to sunlight, and examining it for the emergence of octane (possibly using a previously-developed indicase which indicates the presence of octane by catalyzing a reaction causing a color-change), followed by extraction of the mechanomers from locations where octane is being produced, replication of those mechanomers, and their separation and testing for the desired catalysis, possibly by further rounds of matricial empirical mechanomeric development . . . .

Note that such development and use of such enzymes for such photosynthesis will remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and "fix" it into fuel stocks, helping palliate the global ecological impact of the massive industrial fossil-fuel extraction and burning and consequent carbon dioxide emission and greenhouse effect of the past two centuries.
