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.

Injecting ‘solar cells’ into the body to regenerate brain cells

Associate Professor Menglin Chen has received a major grant from the Carlsberg Foundation to develop a completely new method of regenerating brain and heart cells. The method uses water-based nanofibers coated with organic photovoltaic nanomaterials to create light controlled neural stimulating scaffolds inside the body.

In the future, the newly discovered mechanism will potentially enable insertion of the sensor specifically into diseased cells and may allow diagnosis at the single cell level. Figure: Rasmus Peter Thomsen/AU.

Researchers create synthetic nanopores made from DNA

A scientific collaboration led by researchers at iNANO/Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Aarhus University and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen has resulted in the construction of a synthetic DNA nanopore capable of selectively translocating protein-size macromolecules across lipid bilayers.
