Chromophore-peptide systems: a study on a series of pentapeptides covalently connected to planar π systems (1 a and 1 b) or to a curved π system (1 c) showed the influence of the concave shape on the efficient chiral transmission at nano- and mesoscales. Control over the hierarchical growth by H bonding, π-π, and solvophobic interactions made possible the(More)
The construction of ordered single-wall carbon nanotube soft-materials at the nanoscale is currently an important challenge in science. Here we use single-wall carbon nanotubes as a tool to gain control over the crystalline ordering of three-dimensional bulk materials composed of suitably functionalized molecular building blocks. We prepare p-type(More)
The performance of the multifractal detrended analysis on short time series is evaluated for synthetic samples of several mono- and multifractal models. The reconstruction of the generalized Hurst exponents is used to determine the range of applicability of the method and the precision of its results as a function of the decreasing length of the series. As(More)
137Cs and 40K activity concentrations and stable elements have been measured in Clavariadelphus truncatus collected in Mexico. Iron-chelating compounds of siderophore-type was also studied in the species. 137Cs and 40K were determined in soil and mushroom samples with HpGe gamma-ray spectrometry. Macro- and micro-elemental concentrations were determined by(More)
Controlling self-organization and morphology of chemical architectures is an essential challenge in the search for higher energy-conversion efficiencies in a variety of optoelectronic devices. Here, we report a highly ordered donor/acceptor functional material, which has been obtained using the principle of ionic self-assembly. Initially, an electron donor(More)
Molecular technologies are more frequently applied in Antarctic ecosystem research and the growing amount of sequence-based information available in databases adds a new dimension to understanding the response of Antarctic organisms and communities to environmental change. We apply molecular techniques, including fingerprinting, and amplicon and metagenome(More)
The synthesis, characterisation, and X-ray structure of a new strained asymmetric diferrocene derivative (2) is reported. Compound 2 acts as a highly specific electrochemical and optical Mg(2+) ion sensor, as revealed by spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques. Thus, in the presence of Mg(2+), a new redox peak appears in the cyclic voltammogram (CV)(More)
