Controlling the conversion of CO2 with new catalysts

Converting CO2 into more useful products offers an interesting strategy to mitigate climate issues while producing value added chemicals. Researchers from the Carbon Dioxide Activation Center (CADIAC) have discovered how the ligand scaffold around a manganese catalyst can be modified to control the selectivity of the products generated via…

New Carbon Isotope Labeling Technique

Carbon isotope labeling of new drug candidates is an important process for allowing preclinical and clinical investigations on a specific compound’s distribution, metabolism, and toxicity. AU researchers have found a new method for this with broad applicability.

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…
