  • Biochemistry: Combining two catalytic worlds

    Chemical and biological catalysts tend to require very different reaction conditions, making their combination challenging. Researchers of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have succeeded in taking this hurdle by using a special gel matrix to compartmentalize both types of catalysts. The results obtained more

  • Researchers develop DNA-based single-electron electronic devices

    Nature has inspired generations of people, offering a plethora of different materials for innovations. One such material is the molecule of the heritage, or DNA, thanks to its unique self-assembling properties. Researchers at the Nanoscience Center (NSC) of the University of Jyväskylä and BioMediTec more

  • How water flows near the superhydrophobic surface

    Water (and other liquids) has an unusual property when it flows closely to some specially designed surfaces: its speed isn't equal to zero even in the layer that directly touches the wall. This means that liquid doesn't adhere to the surface, but instead slides along it. Such an effect is called hyd more

A Brief Guide to Types of Organic Chemistry Formulae

Back to basics with today’s graphic, with a look at the different ways compounds in organic chemistry can be represented. Obviously, if you’re a chemist, these will all be second nature, but as was quite fairly pointed out with regards to the food chemistry graphics, if you’re not well versed in che more

A Guide to Simple Heterocycles in Organic Chemistry

We’ve already examined the functional groups that can be present in organic molecules in a previous post; here, we take a look one step further, at heterocycles. Heterocycles are hugely important in organic chemistry – they make up more than half of all known organic compounds. Caffeine is a prime e more

Benzene Derivatives in Organic Chemistry

Benzene is a hugely important compound in organic chemistry. It consists of six carbon atoms joined together in a ring, with a hydrogen atom bonded to each carbon; by replacing one or more of these hydrogens with a functional group, a large number of different compounds can be formed. This graphic l more

  • New Trends in Computer-Aided Drug Design

    Computer-Aided Drug design (CADD) is not new. The Journal of Computer-Aided Molecular Design (Springer) was founded in 1987, when computers in the worldwide top 500 were slower than today’s smart phones. This makes the field a quarter of a century old. Generally, scientific disciplines of this age have become mature, the major developments have been made and procedures have become routine. more

  • From RNA World to Protein World

    Within the various domains of life, the evolution of the tRNA processing enzyme (RNase P) has led to a set of highly diverse architectonic solutions. Bacterial RNase P thus has a fundamentally different structure to human RNase P enzymes in the cell nucleus and mitochondria. This structural and functional diversity could lead to the development of new antibiotics. more
