This review focuses on the chemosensors for neurotransmitters published for the last 12 years, covering biogenic amines (dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, histamine and acetylcholine), amino acids (glutamate, aspartate, GABA, glycine and tyrosine), and adenosine.
Recent developments in the field of proton-conducting MOFs are reviewed, with a special focus on the design strategies and structural characteristics of the best performers in the low temperature (<100 °C) and the high-temperature (>100 °C) regimes.
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are hybrid porous materials with many potential applications, which intimately depend on the presence of chemical functionality either at the organic linkers and/or at the metal nodes.
Much success has been achieved with platinum-based chemotherapeutic agents, i.e. through interactions with DNA. The long-term application of Pt complexes is thwarted by issues, leading scientists to examine other metals such as palladium which could exhibit complementary modes of action.
Moving from a traditional static picture of proteins to an alternative dynamic paradigm is one of the biggest challenges of structural biology, and the point where modeling can contribute the most. I review here the current state of the art in theoretical methods for dynamic representation of proteins.
