Pushing the limits of 2D supramolecules

Since the 2004 discovery of graphene, the world's thinnest (one-atom-thick) and strongest (200 times stronger than steel) material, researchers have been…

Münster University chemists create new types of Lewis acids on the basis of phosphorus

Researchers at the University of Münster have developed a method which makes it possible to create three-coordinate Lewis superacids on the basis of…

Construction kit for custom-designed products

Microorganisms often assemble natural products similar to product assembly lines. Certain enzymes, non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS), play a key role in…

Münster University researchers develop new synthesis method for producing fluorinated piperidines

Synthetic molecules are essential for many products in our lives: medicines, crop protection agents or special materials such as Teflon. These molecules have…

Light-controlled molecules: Scientists develop new recycling strategy

Robust plastics are composed of molecular building-blocks, held together by tough chemical linkages. Their cleavage is extremely difficult to achieve,…

Modified biomaterials self-assemble on temperature cues

Biomedical engineers from Duke University have demonstrated a new approach to making self-assembled biomaterials that relies on protein modifications and…

Researchers report in "Nature Chemistry" on cell-permeable nanobodies

Antibodies are one of the main weapons of our immune system. They dock to viruses, bacteria and other invaders that course through our blood, and thereby…

The Molecular Breakdance of Seeing

The detection of light by pigments in the retina, called rhodopsin or visual purple, leads to our sense of vision. New experiments by scientists from the Max…

Rapid chemical synthesis of proteins by a new amino acid partner

The development of new methods for the chemical synthesis of proteins is highly significant to access a range of proteins inaccessible by conventional…

Programmed Synthesis towards Multi-substituted Benzene Derivatives

Professor Kenichiro Itami, Junichiro Yamaguchi, Yasutomo Segawa and Shin Suzuki at the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), Nagoya University and…
