You are just crazy [:)]

All emzymes operate on the electon shell level. None can penetrate the electronic energy levels to reach inside the nucleus. Irregardless of how it is accomplished there is a certian amount of energy required to remove a nucleon, if you do not have sufficient energy to overcome the nuclear binding energies you cannot modify an atomic nucleus.

Ages ago I started an essay on alchemy, but never completed it. You ened MS Word to view all the footnotes and such. http://bad-sports.com/~archive/alchemy.doc

I have seen the future and this
nano-machine will be created.
Each will cost $400,658.00 to
produce. Each will be able to
create $3.37 worth of gold before
it breaks down.

I have invented a machine that converts uranium to lead. It just takes a while.
