Parallel isoelectric focusing II
It is shown that the method guarantees the fast and complete separation of any complex protein mixtures under acceptable conditions, such as voltage source, temperature, size of the device, and separation process duration.
Computationally Mapping pKa Shifts Due to the Presence of a Polyelectrolyte Chain around Whey Proteins.
Through physical chemistry parameters, free energies of interactions, and the mapping of amino acid pKa shifts and polyelectrolyte trajectories, the charge regulation mechanism is shown to be the most important contributor in protein-polyelectrolete complexation regardless of pH, dipole moment, and protein capacitance in a low salt regime.


Adsorption of semiflexible polyelectrolytes on charged planar surfaces: Charge compensation, charge reversal, and multilayer formation.
We study theoretically the adsorption of semiflexible charged polymers on an oppositely charged flat substrate. We restrict ourselves to polymers with relatively high line charge density τ and bare

Electronic Properties of Doped Semi-conductors
First-generation semiconductors could not be properly termed "doped- they were simply very impure. Uncontrolled impurities hindered the discovery of physical laws, baffling researchers and evoking
Vortices in high-temperature superconductors
With the high-temperature superconductors a qualitatively new regime in the phenomenology of type-II superconductivity can be accessed. The key elements governing the statistical mechanics and the
Screening of a charged particle by multivalent counterions in salty water: Strong charge inversion
Screening of a macroion such as a charged solid particle, a charged membrane, double helix DNA, or actin by multivalent counterions is considered. Small colloidal particles, charged micelles, short

It is shown that counterions form a strongly correlated liquid at the surface of the macroion that leads to additional attraction of counterions to the surface, which is absent in conventional solutions of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation.
