German term or phrase: stoffwandelnde Eigenschaften
A research institute focuses on "and die Nutzung sensorischer und stoffwandelnder Eigenschaften biologischer Komponenten in technischen Systemen". Any ideas what this is or how to render this?

organoleptic and catalytic properties
Explanation:
I found the Web site of this institute and read some of their stuff. Your context is bio-engineering, environment and biochemistry.

"Stoffwandelnd" means 'transforming the constituent material'. This is a catalyst. A substance that changes the speed at which a chemical reaction takes place without taking part in the reaction itself.

See definition of catalyst:

'Sensorisch' means organoleptic or something relating to the perception of a sensory organ. See definition:
http://www.bartleby.com/61/72/O0117200.html

You entire phrase translates to:
"...and the use of organoleptic and catalytic properties of biological components in technical systems"

matabolic properties


Explanation:
In biology "Stoffwandel" is actually "Stoffwechsel" in German and that is translated as "metabolism"

Googl:
"showed increased significantly, it means that the metabolic property shifted from
the aerobic oxidative system toward the anaerobic glycolitic system. But in ...
