Nanomaterials, Enzyme models, Thiol chemistry
The foundation for supramolecular chemistry is in nature; by studying these archetypes, chemists have devised methods of recreating these complex interactions in the laboratory. Of particular interest is the interplay between enzyme- more specifically, its active site- and the target substrate. Utilizing recent advancements in self-assembled monolayers, progress towards a more-accurate flavoenzyme model has been demonstrated.
