Results published by AU researchers reveal that surfactant-mediated unfolding and refolding of proteins are complex processes with several structures present, and rearrangements occur on time scales from sub-milliseconds to minutes.

Caught soap-handed: Understanding how soap molecules help proteins get in and out of shape

Controlling protein structure is crucial in the production of detergents and cosmetics. Up to now we have not had a clear understanding of how soap molecules and proteins work together to change protein structure. Now AU researchers have succeeded in creating a detailed picture of both unfolding and refolding of a protein by soap molecules on the…

From minus to plus – new magnet technology enhances green power

There are magnets in virtually all modern electrical equipment. However, the current versions are often based on metals with heavy impacts on the environment. Associate Professor Mogens Christensen is researching a new and cleaner magnet technology; research which also opens up for new opportunities to exploit and store electricity.

Safe reactions with dangerous gases

Professor Troels Skrydstrup has been interviewed by Chemistry Views (Wiley) about his successful work in organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry, and especially running safe reactions with dangerous but very useful gases, like carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide. Hear about his research plans and why Denmark is a nice place to do research.
