Carbon nanohoops are conjugated macrocycles with radially-arranged aromatic groups. Their curved aromatic structures give rise to unique electronic and photophysical properties.
A synthesis of linker-free BODIPY-glycine derivatives, via functionalization at the boron atom, is reported. The new compounds were studied experimentally and computationally, and shown to have high stability and fluorescence quantum yields.
Quorum Sensing is a biological phenomenon of cellular communication which plays a role in biofilm development or even bacteria colony growth. We emulate this communication by using an analog of urease encapsulated beads subjected to a urea solution.
