Bioinspired systems in supramolecular chemistry and nanotechnology
Supramolecular systems involving bio and/or bioinspired molecules offer an alternative route for the fabrication of nano-objects. Recent advances in such systems should lead to progress in molecular sensing, controlled release, signaling, etc., and to new developments in numerous fields ranging from soft materials to medicinal chemistry. A good number of supramolecular assemblies featuring natural and/or synthetic molecules are now available.
This themed issue will focus on all aspects regarding the description of new approaches and methodologies, which can usefully be applied to the exploration of bio and/or bioinspired supramolecular systems. Research papers and reviews dealing with the presented fields are welcome for the preparation of this themed issue of the New Journal of Chemistry.
Biomolecules and their synthetic analogues forming supramolecular systems. Recent progress in the area of bio-inspired materials and/or colloids based on biomolecules and/or bio-inspired derivatives such as nucleosides, nucleotides, oligonucleotides, aminoacids, peptides, lipids, sugars, etc. Smart self-assemblies, nanosystems, biosensors, bioimaging tools, etc.
