Heterogeneous protein co-assemblies with tunable functional domain stoichiometry

The distinct peptide strands of a heterotrimeric α-helical coiled-coil can be used as fusion tags to mediate heterogeneous co-assembly of proteins into supramolecular complexes with tunable subunit stoichiometry.

Alkylation of poly-substituted aromatics to probe effects of mesopores in hierarchical zeolites with differing frameworks and crystal sizes

Kinetic analysis of alkylation of 1,3,5-trimethylbenzene with benzyl alcohol and accompanying secondary reactions provides insight into reaction–diffusion–deactivation of bulky polyaromatic moieties in hierarchical zeolites.
