iNANO researchers contribute to exhibition at Steno Museum

The exhibition ‘Profession and Passion – a Life in Science’ is launched at the Steno Museum, Aarhus University. iNANO researchers have contributed to the exhibition on what impels researchers and how science and passion live alongside each other.

AU Researchers perform nanodissection using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and unveil how cable bacteria conduct energy. The image shows micrograph (left) of filamentous Desulfobulbaceae and AFM topography (Right) og the outer membrane after nanodissection. Image: Mingdong Dong

Nanodissection unveils how bacteria conduct energy

Recent discoveries show that cable bacteria can function as electrical wires, however it is unclear how it is possible to have long-range electron transfer through these cobweb thin bacterial chains. Using Atomic Force Microscopy as a nanoscalpel AU researchers now bring us closer to understanding the interior structure of the bacteria.

Steffan K. Kristensen, Simon Laursen and Troels Skrydstrup publish in Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed. on a safer and more potent hydrothiolation using methanethiol. The studies are funded by BIOVALUE SPIR from the Innovation Fund Denmark, and the Danish National Research Foundation and Haldor Topsøe.

Simpler and safer method for handling a useful but foul-smelling gas in chemical synthesis

Researchers at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) and Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University, have developed both an ingenious, as well as a safe procedure for using the ’rotten egg’ smelling and flammable gas, methanethiol, in certain chemical reactions.

New high-throughput screening study may pave the way for future Parkinson’s disease therapy

Parkinson's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease; currently there is no cure. Aggregation of the protein α-synuclein plays a key role in this disease. Together with a US drug company, AU researchers have now carried out a new screening strategy which has identified novel and structurally diverse aggregation inhibitors.
