Time-resolved nanosecond mid-infrared spectroscopy is for the first time employed to study the [FeFe] hydrogenase from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and to investigate relevant intermediates of the enzyme active site. An actinic 355 nm, 10 ns laser flash triggered photodissociation of a carbonyl group from the CO-inhibited state H-ox-CO to form the state H-ox, which is an intermediate of the catalytic proton reduction cycle. Time-resolved infrared spectroscopy allowed us to directly follow the subsequent rebinding of the carbonyl, re-forming H-ox-CO, and determine the reaction half-life to be t(1/2) approximate to 13 +/- 5 ms at room temperature. This gives direct information GO on the dynamics of CO inhibition of the enzyme.
