The European Materials Society — now 20 years old — offers a focus on functional materials and a willingness to engage in policy issues. The success of present and future activities depends on its ability to remain flexible.
Biomolecules are notorious for their unpredictable flexibility. Some of the smallest nanopores ever created are being used to manipulate individual DNA molecules, with far-from simple results.
The separation of semiconducting and metallic nanotubes from bulk mixed samples is an essential requirement for researchers attempting to fabricate nanotube-based electronic devices. Four reports demonstrate the variety of approaches being used to tackle this problem.
Some crystalline solids, such as zeolites, can be converted into amorphous structures by heat or pressure without ever forming a liquid. Experiments and models show that the distinction between order and disorder is getting increasingly blurred.
Proteins are used by living organisms to perform important movement, transport and sensing functions. The extraction of a contractile protein from pulses (broad beans) takes us closer to making fully functional biomimetic synthetic machines.
The potential uses of inorganic quantum dots in biolabelling and sensing could be expanded through their ability to function as resonant energy-transfer donors. Novel quantum dot–protein sensors may be the way ahead.
Proteins, through their unique and specific interactions with other macromolecules and inorganics, control structures and functions of all biological hard and soft tissues in organisms. Molecular biomimetics is an emerging field in which hybrid technologies are developed by using the tools of...
