Engineering robust protein production and purification of correctly folded biotherapeutic proteins in cell-based systems is often challenging due to the requirements for maintaining complex cellular networks for cell viability and the need to develop associated downstream processes that reproducibly yield biopharmaceutical products with high product(More)
Nanoporous molecular frameworks are important in applications such as separation, storage and catalysis. Empirical rules exist for their assembly but it is still challenging to place and segregate functionality in three-dimensional porous solids in a predictable way. Indeed, recent studies of mixed crystalline frameworks suggest a preference for the(More)
Bispecific antibodies have emerged in recent years as a promising field of research for therapies in oncology, inflammable diseases, and infectious diseases. Their capability of dual target recognition allows for novel therapeutic hypothesis to be tested, where traditional mono-specific antibodies would lack the needed mode of target engagement. Among(More)
Antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) have progressed from hypothesis to approved therapeutics in less than 30 years, and the technologies available to modify both the antibodies and the cytotoxic drugs are expanding rapidly. For reasons well reviewed previously, the field is trending strongly toward homogeneous, defined antibody conjugation. In this review we(More)
A novel linear trinuclear magnesium complex (P(S)[N(CH3)N=CHC6H4-o-O]3)2Mg3 was prepared by the reaction of P(S)[N(CH3))N=CHC6H4-o-OH]3 with MgCl2 x 6H2O in the presence of triethylamine. The trinuclear magnesium complex is fluorescent in solution as well as in the solid-state.
Reaction of LiAlH4 with 1,2-phenylenediamine (1H4) in THF results in formation of the metallocyclic amido-/imido complex [{Al(1H2)}2{Al(1H)2}2][Li(THF)2]4 (3), while in the presence of various Lewis base ligands 1,8-diaminonaphthalene (2H4) gives the amido-('ate') complexes [Al(2H2)2](-)[Li(LL')](+) [L = THF, L' = PMDETA(More)
Cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) systems allow for robust protein expression with easy manipulation of conditions to improve protein yield and folding. Recent technological developments have significantly increased the productivity and reduced the operating costs of CFPS systems, such that they can compete with conventional in vivo protein production(More)
Cobalt-containing polyoxotitanates (TiCo) are excellent precursors for the simple and scalable preparation of Nocera-type CoOx water-oxidation electrocatalysts. The TiCo cages serve as a reservoir for cobalt ions in a titania matrix on fluoride-doped tin oxide electrodes, and form, in situ, the active CoOx catalyst for O2 evolution with high stability in(More)
