Gene networks that compensate for crosstalk with crosstalk
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-09-06)
Crosstalk is a major challenge to engineering sophisticated synthetic gene networks. A common approach is to insulate signal-transduction pathways by minimizing molecular-level crosstalk between endogenous and synthetic ...
Enantiomeric glycosylated cationic block co-beta-peptides eradicate Staphylococcus aureus biofilms and antibiotic-tolerant persisters
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-10-21)
The treatment of bacterial infections is hindered by the presence of biofilms and metabolically inactive persisters. Here, we report the synthesis of an enantiomeric block co-beta-peptide, poly(amido-D-glucose)-block-pol ...
Catalytic, contra-Thermodynamic Positional Alkene Isomerization
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2021-12)
The positional isomerization of C═C double bonds is a powerful strategy for the interconversion of alkene regioisomers. However, existing methods provide access to thermodynamically more stable isomers from less stable ...
Low-Temperature H2S/CO2/CH4 Separation in Mixed-Matrix Membranes Containing MFU-4
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2021-09)
Dissociative Ligand Exchange at Identical Molecular and Carbon Nanoparticle Binding Sites
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2020-09-01)
Molten ionic oxides for CO2 capture at medium to high temperatures
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2019)
The development of efficient low cost CO2 capture systems is a critical challenge for mitigating climate change while meeting global energy demand. Herein, we demonstrate the first liquid absorbents for CO2 capture at ...
Studying nucleic envelope and plasma membrane mechanics of eukaryotic cells using confocal reflectance interferometric microscopy
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-13)
Mechanical stress on eukaryotic nucleus has been implicated in a diverse range of diseases including muscular dystrophy and cancer metastasis. Today, there are very few non-perturbative methods to quantify nuclear mechanical ...
Chemically active nanodroplets in a multi-component fluid
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2019-07)
We introduce a model of chemically active particles of a multi-component fluid that can change their interactions with other particles depending on their state. Since such switching of interactions can only be maintained ...
Time-resolved XUV ARPES with tunable 24–33 eV laser pulses at 30 meV resolution
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-06)
High harmonic generation of ultrafast laser pulses can be used to perform angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) to map the electronic band structure of materials with femtosecond time resolution. However, ...
Nanostructured polymer films with metal-like thermal conductivity
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-04-16)
Due to their unique properties, polymers – typically thermal insulators – can open up opportunities for advanced thermal management when they are transformed into thermal conductors. Recent studies have shown polymers can ...
