Phycobilisomes are the main light-harvesting protein complexes in cyanobacteria and some algae. It is commonly accepted that these complexes only absorb green and orange light, complementing… Continue Reading
It is well known that prokaryotic life can withstand extremes of temperature, pH, pressure, and radiation. Little is known about the proliferation of prokaryotic life under conditions of… Continue Reading
Infrared spectra of samples from oil paintings often show metal carboxylate bands that are broader and shifted compared to those of crystalline metal soap standards (metal complexes of long-chain… Continue Reading
3D titania photonic crystals are replicated from single gyroid structures found in the butterfly Callophrys rubi. Photonic crystals were characterised using SEM imaging, X-ray and Raman scattering… Continue Reading
Remarkable room-temperature liquid crystallinity is observed for a wide range of metal soaps. Incorporation of saturated, mid-chain mono-methyl branched C17 fatty acid (mid-chain branched fatty acid)… Continue Reading
Control over morphology and internal mesostructure of surfactant templated silicas remains a challenge, especially when considering scaling laboratory syntheses up to industrial volumes. Here we… Continue Reading
Lipids with amphiphilic character and two or more hydrocarbon chains can exist in a molecular conformation such that the molten, gel or crystalline hydrophobic chains point away from a central polar… Continue Reading
aken together, the body of existing literature on metal soap crystal structures and mesophases supports the view that much is to be gained by treating the soaps as metal organic frameworks (MOF's) ...
We investigated theoretically two competing published scenarios for the melting transition of the triglyceride trilaurin (TL): those of (1) Corkery et al. [Langmuir 23, 7241 (2007)], in which the… Continue Reading
To date, essentially only two structural models have been proposed and debated in detail for explaining the liquid state order of triglycerides, and both invoke a form of thermotropic liquid… Continue Reading
