    Three different tetraphenylalanine (FFFF) based peptides that differ at the N- and C-termini have been synthesized by using standard procedures to study their ability to form different nanoassemblies under a variety of ...
  • Electroactive polymer-peptide conjugates for adhesive biointerfaces 

    Maione, Silvana; Gil, Ana M.; Fabregat Jové, Georgina; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Triguero Enguídanos, Jordi; Laurent, A.; Jacquemin, Denis; Estrany Coda, Francesc; Jimenez Sanz, Ana Isabel; Zanuy Gomara, David; Cativiela, Carlos; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Electroactive polymer-peptide conjugates have been synthesized by combining poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), a polythiophene derivative with outstanding properties, and an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD)-based peptide in which Gly has ...
  • Reversible changes induced by temperature in the spherulitic birefringence of nylon 6 9 

    Murase Fernández, Sara Keiko; Casas, Maria Teresa; Martinez, Juan Carlos; Estrany Coda, Francesc; Franco García, María Lourdes; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi (Elsevier, 2015-10-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Spherulitic morphologies of nylon 6 9 as an example of an even-odd nylon were studied by optical microscopy. A well-defined dependence on crystallization temperature was found. In particular, positively birefringent ...
  • The influence of organophosphonic acid and conducting polymer on the adhesion and protection of epoxy coating on aluminium alloy 

    Dalmoro, Viviane; Alemán Llansó, Carlos; Ferreira, Carlos Arthur; Dos Santos, J.H.Z.; Azambuja, Denise S.; Armelín Diggroc, Elaine Aparecida (2015-11-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - author's decision
    In the present study we compared the beneficial effect on the incorporation of modified silane nanocoating and conducting polymer additive to the adhesion and protection of aluminium surface with epoxy coating. Results ...
  • Insulating and semiconducting polymeric free-standing nanomembranes with biomedical applications 

    Pérez Madrigal, Maria del Mar; Armelín Diggroc, Elaine Aparecida; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In recent decades, polymers have experienced a radical evolution: from being used as inexpensive materials in the manufacturing of simple appliances to be designed as nanostructured devices with important applications in ...
  • Elucidating the mechanism of interaction between peptides and inorganic surfaces
