TOTAL CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS AND BIOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF A DESIGNED SOLUBLE 24 KDA AMYLOID ANALOGUE

Researchers from the team of Protein Chemistry at the University of Strasbourg demonstrated a novel approach to study molecular recognition in amyloids. The findings that have implications for the development of diagnostic tools for protein misfolding diseases are published in Chemical Science and selected by the editors to be part of the 2018 Chemical Science … Continue Reading ››

Post-Doc position in materials chemistry/2D materials

We are looking for highly motivated Post-Doc candidates with a strong background in physical chemistry of 2D materials, to perform groundbreaking research on the fabrication of multifunctional hybrid devices based on 2D materials and supramolecular nanostructures. In particular, we are searching for an outstanding candidate with previous experience in 2D materials (production, multiscale characterization, … Continue Reading ››

Reversible, Fast, and Wide-Range Oxygen Sensor Based on Nanostructured Organometal Halide Perovskite

Reversible, Fast, and Wide-Range Oxygen Sensor Based on Nanostructured Organometal Halide Perovskite

Abstract

Nanostructured materials characterized by high surface–volume ratio hold the promise to constitute the active materials for next-generation sensors. Solution-processed hybrid organohalide perovskites, which have been extensively used in the last few years for … Continue Reading ››

Metabolism without enzymes.

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg have shown that a large part of an anabolic pathway central to biochemistry can be promoted by simple metals without the need for enzymes.   The pathway known as the reverse Krebs cycle is thought to have been one of the earliest metabolic pathways in early life. This new research … Continue Reading ››

Supramolecular cruise control

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg have shown that artificial supramolecular fibers can be kept in sustained non-equilibrium steady states, similar to a car driving on cruise control. In living systems, chemical fuel is used continuously and waste is removed at the same time. A similar feat was now achieved in an artificial system using … Continue Reading ››

Organic–inorganic heterostructures with programmable electronic properties

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg & CNRS (France), in collaboration with the University of Mons (Belgium), the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Germany) and the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), have devised a novel supramolecular strategy to introduce tunable 1D periodic potentials upon self-assembly of ad hoc organic building blocks on graphene, opening the … Continue Reading ››
