  • Effect of the solvent on the conformational behavior of the alanine dipeptide deduced from MD simulations 

    Rubio Martínez, Jaime; Tomás Belenguer, María Santos; Pérez González, Juan Jesús (2017-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In general, peptides do not exhibit a well-defined conformational profile in solution. However, despite the experimental blurred picture associated with their structure, compelling spectroscopic evidence shows that peptides ...
  • Systematic decision making models through Conceptual Constraints 

    Dombayci, Canan; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2017)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Departing from the equivalences along different models established at different decision-making hierarchical levels, in this work the joint usage of a Conceptual Constraint (CC) Domain and a Process Systems Engineering ...
  • Constraint identification and integration procedures in multi-level hierarchical systems 

    Dombayci, Canan; Capon Garcia, Elisabeth; Muñoz, Edrisi; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2017-11-09)
    Article

    Heidarzadeh, Nina; Rafizadeh, Mehdi; Taromi, Faramarz Afshar; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Franco García, María Lourdes (2017-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Random copolyesters having 1,4-butanediol units were synthesized from a transesterification process between homopolymers constituted by aliphatic dicarboxylates (i.e. succinate, adipate or sebacate) and the aromatic ...
  • The biocompatible polythiophene-: G-polycaprolactone copolymer as an efficient dopamine sensor platform 

    Molina, Brenda G.; Bendrea, Anca Dana; Cianga, Luminita; Armelín Diggroc, Elaine Aparecida; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Cianga, Ioan; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2017-10-21)
    Article

    Amphiphilic copolymers consisting of an all conjugated polythiophene backbone and sparsely attached oligo-¿-caprolactone side chains have been prepared by anodic electropolymerization of hydroxymethyl-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene ...
  • Self-assembly of diphenylalanine with preclick components as capping groups 

    Gemma, Andrea; Mayans Tayadella, Enric; Ballano Ballano, María Gema; Torras Costa, Juan; Díaz Andrade, Angélica María; Jimenez Sanz, Ana Isabel; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Cativiela Marín, Carlos A.; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2017-01-01)
    Article

    Alkyne and azide, which are commonly used in the cycloaddition reaction recognized as “click chemistry”, have been used as capping groups of two engineered diphenylalanine (FF) derivatives due to their ability to form weak ...
  • Effect of solvent choice on the self-assembly properties of a diphenylalanine amphiphile stabilized by an ion pair 

    Mayans Tayadella, Enric; Ballano Ballano, María Gema; Sendros, Javier; Font Bardia, Mercè; Campos López, Josefina de Lourdes; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Cativiela, Carlos; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2017-07-19)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A diphenylalanine (FF) amphiphile blocked at the C terminus with a benzyl ester (OBzl) and stabilized at the N terminus with a trifluoroacetate (TFA) anion was synthetized and characterized. Aggregation of peptide molecules ...
  • A phosphorous flow analysis in Spain 

    Álvarez, Jesús; Roca, Marc; Valderrama Angel, César Alberto; Cortina Pallás, José Luís (Elsevier, 2018-01-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Phosphorus (P) is a vital macronutrient required to improve the agricultural yields but its excessive use as a fertilizer has resulted in pollution of water bodies leading to eutrophication. With no reserves of phosphorus ...
  • Hydrogenolysis of glycidol as an alternative route to obtain 1,3-propanediol selectively using MOx-modified nickel-copper catalysts supported on acid mesoporous saponite

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Ni and Cu mono- and bimetallic catalysts modified with various types of acid oxides MOx (M=Mo, V, W, and Re) were tested for the hydrogenolysis of glycidol as an alternative route to the hydrogenolysis of glycerol to obtain ...
  • Subsurface nitrate reduction under wetlands takes place in narrow superficial zones 

    Ribas Fargas, David; Calderer, Montserrat; Martí Gregorio, Vicenç; Johnsen, A.R.; Aamand, Jens; Nilsson, B.; Jensen, J. K.; Engesgaard, P.; Morici, C. (2017-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study aims to investigate the depth distribution of the Nitrate Reduction Potential (NRP) on a natural and a re-established wetland. The obtained NRP provides a valuable data of the driving factors affecting ...
