Oscillating artificial microtubules

Oscillating artificial microtubules

Chemically fuelled processes control size oscillations of natural fibres inside the body such as microtubules or actin filaments. Researchers from the University of Strasbourg have now discovered similar size oscillations in a completely artificial system. Brightly coloured molecules form extended supramolecular fibres that can be controlled by redox chemistry. In a … Continue Reading ››

Flipping the switch on supramolecular electronics

Flipping the switch on supramolecular electronics

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg & CNRS (France), in collaboration with the University of Mons (Belgium), the Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany), and the University of Trento (Italy), have created photoswitchable molecular lattices on two-dimensional materials and exploited them to fabricate high-performance hybrid devices with light-controllable electrical … Continue Reading ››

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 ››

CO2 coupling on iron parallels ancient biological pathway

Researchers at the University of Strasbourg have discovered a striking similarity between the way carbon dioxide (CO2) reacts with metals and the way that ancient microbes use CO2 to build their biomass, providing potential insight into how chemistry on the early Earth foreshadowed biochemistry in the first organisms. The study was funded by the European Research … 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 ››
