Large Sequence-Defined Macromolecules

In a recently-published publication, researchers of the PMC group of the ICS describe for the first time the preparation of large sequence-defined macromolecules. These structures were obtained by a c

Interfacial agents for fiber-reinforced composite materials

The adsorption of sequence-defined oligomers based on phenylalanine on Kevlar fibers was investigated.

Jean-François Lutz joins Progress in Polymer Science as Senior Editor

Starting January 2021, Jean-François Lutz will join the editorial board of « Progress in Polymer Science » as Senior Editor

Microbubbles with a shell of nanodiamonds for diagnostic and therapy

Microbubbles with a shell of nanodiamonds that have a potential for bioimaging and cell therapy have been prepared and studied at the ICS in collaboration with the Institut de Chimie of Clermont Auver

Investigation of thermodynamic phases of lipids via Machine Learning algorithms

We recently published a PCCP article showing that machine learning can be used to investigate the thermodynamic phase transition in membranes.

Antibacterial peptidic assembly

A peptide-based coating was obtained thanks to the action of an enzyme, immobilized on the surface, inducing its localized self-assembly and giving it a bactericidal effect superior to the peptide in

Chirality impact on hydrogen-bonded semiconductors

Hydrogen bonds can efficiently guide the self-assembly of organic materials, enabling to tune the properties of the aggregation processes...

Hyperbranched polymers on UCNPs

The growth of hyperbranched polymers from the surface of upconversion nanoparticles was investigated.

Antibacterial Nanocoatings

An antibacterial nanocoating, non-toxic for human cells, has been developed based on polyphenols and collagen.
