Ultra-performance liquid chromatography is a common analysis tool, and stirring is common in many laboratory setups. Here we show a device which enables continuous stirring of samples whilst inside an ultra-performance liquid chromatography system. Utilizing standard magnetic stirring bars that fit standard vials, the device allows for the automation of experimental setups that require stirring. The device is designed such that it can replace the standard sample holder and fits in its place…

3D printed high-throughput hydrothermal reactionware for discovery, optimization, and scale-up.
S sealed, monolithic reactors suitable for use in hydrothermal synthesis have been digitally designed and realized and used to discover two new coordination polymers, optimize the synthesis of one of these, and scale-up its synthesis using larger reactors produced on the same 3D printer.
3D printing scanning electron microscopy sample holders: A quick and cost effective alternative for custom holder fabrication
A simple and cost effective alternative for fabricating custom Scanning Electron Microscope sample holders using 3D printers and conductive polylactic acid filament is presented and are found to be sufficiently resistant, allowing for multiple uses of the same holder.
Open-Source Hardware Is a Low-Cost Alternative for Scientific Instrumentation and Research
Scientific research requires the collection of data in order to study, monitor, analyze, describe, or understand a particular process or event. Data collection efforts are often a compromise: manual
Mechanosensitive Self-Replication Driven by Self-Organization
Two self-replicating peptide-derived macrocycles that emerge from a small dynamic combinatorial library and compete for a common feedstock are reported that mechanical forces can act as a selection pressure in the competition between replicators and can determine the outcome of a covalent synthesis.
Three-Dimensional Printing in Analytical Chemistry: Principles and Applications
ABSTRACT Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a technique characterized by sequential deposition of plastic, metal, ceramics, and biological gels resulting in a final object. In this work, the printing
Systems chemistry.
An impression of the state of the art of the field is given by showing a diverse number of recent highlights, including out-of-equilibrium self-assembly, chemically fuelled molecular motion, compartmentalised chemical networks and designed oscillators.
Introduction and Review
Investigations are carried out for the production of a novel category of biologically active substances known to the world as “Immunostimulants” that promote synthesis of specific antibodies and cytokines and represent an emerging class of drugs for the treatment of infectious disorders.
Uncovering the selection criteria for the emergence of multi-building-block replicators from dynamic combinatorial libraries.
The insights obtained in this work provide valuable guidance that should facilitate future discovery of new complex self-replicating molecules and assist in the development of new self-synthesizing materials, where self-assembly drives the synthesis of the very molecules that self-assemble.
