  • Biofunctionalization of titanium surfaces with heparin-binding biomolecules to enhance osteointegration of implants 

    Garrido Domínguez, Beatriz (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-06)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    For orthopaedic, dental or craniofacial applications osteointegration is critical for short-term initial stability and long-term success of the implant. Important efforts have been made in the past to optimize the ...
  • Controlled manipulation of enzyme specificity through immobilization-induced flexibility constraints 

    Coscolín, Cristina; Beloqui, Ana; Martínez-Martínez, Mónica; Bargiela, Rafael; Santiago, Gerard; Blanco, Rosa M.; Delaittre, Guillaume; Márquez-Álvarez, Carlos; Ferrer, Manuel (Elsevier, 2018-09-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    It is thought that during immobilization enzymes, as dynamic biomolecules, may become distorted and this may alter their catalytic properties. However, the effects of different immobilization strategies on enzyme rigidity ...
  • Design and fabrication of a Planar Diffusion Chamber for bio-chemical applications 

    Pérez Laka, Iván (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-07-13)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    English: Diffusion processes of molecules pretend to be the most important tool of communication between nanometric devices, thereby theoretical and practical studies of these processes became essential in the development ...
  • Dynamics of an inchworm nano-walker 

    Ciudad Álvarez, Aleix; Sancho, Jose Maria; Lacasta Palacio, Ana María (Elsevier Science, 2006-05-19)
    Article
    Open Access
    An inchworm processive mechanism is proposed to explain the motion of dimeric molecular motors such as kinesin.We present here preliminary results for this mechanism focusing on observables like mean velocity, coupling ...
  • Interacting with molecular models in virtual reality 

    Giralt Garcia, Oriol (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-04-17)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Molecular visualization software is an upcoming and growing sector than it's tracing its path thanks to the incoming technologies. Not only allows to compute time-consuming CPU and GPU programs and renders in lesser time, ...
  • Solvent effects on the properties of hyperbranched polythiophenes 

    Torras Costa, Juan; Zanuy Gomara, David; Aradilla, David; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2016-08-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The structural and electronic properties of all-thiophene dendrimers and dendrons in solution have been evaluated using very different theoretical approaches based on quantum mechanical (QM) and hybrid QM/molecular mechanics ...
  • Synthesis of functionalized polythiophenes for detection of biomolecules 

    Redondo Negrete, Edurne (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-09)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    The present study reports the preparation of two different semiconducting polythiophene-type polymers, poly(hydroxymethylated-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), (PEDOT-MeOH) and poly[2,2’-(3-dodecylacetate)thiophene], ...
  • Theoretical and Experimental Study of AM and FM Molecular Communications 

    Pérez Laka, Iván (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-05-06)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  New Jersey Institute of Technology
    Català: En el mètode de senyalització intercel·lular paracrina, les cèl·lules biològiques (emissors) secreten molècules al medi fluídic que les envolta. Les molècules secretades difonen en el medi (canal de comunicacions) ...
