World-Class Research Equipment at iNANO

In an effort to gain a deeper understanding in the natural and medical science, research has over the last decades been increasingly focused on studies of the interactions and organization of molecules. Such research will provide a deep understanding of how individual molecules 'work' in terms of simple chemical and physical laws, and it may…

Correlation between electrochemical and ThT fluorescence analysis  during different phases of the alpha-synuclein fibrillation process. The two extreme areas correspond to monomer (0h) and fibrillated states (40-80h) of the protein.

Amyloid formation of proteins and peptides play a crucial role in many diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. This makes amyloid formation a research field of high importance although it is not yet fully understood. Hence the development of fast and reliable characterization methods for real-time monitoring of protein…

iNANO researchers publishes in Nature Chemistry.

Catalysts made of molybdenum sulfides have been used for the desulphurisation of oil since World War II. Now, Jakob Kibsgaard and Prof. Besenbacher, however, has revealed promising results to produce hydrogen from water by means of nanoparticles of Mo3S13 in a collaboration between iNANO and Stanford. What is so smart about Mo3S13 is that it can…
