Unravelling the origins of ice nucleation on organic crystals
Organic molecules such as steroids or amino acids form crystals that can facilitate the formation of ice – arguably the most important phase transition on earth.
Preventing the coffee-ring effect and aggregate sedimentation by in situ gelation of monodisperse materials
Microscale uniformity and long-range cohesion in multi-functional films assembled through drop-casting is realized by in situ gelation of monodisperse building blocks.
Flying MOFs: polyamine-containing fluidized MOF/SiO2 hybrid materials for CO2 capture from post-combustion flue gas
Solid-state synthesis ensures a high loading and well dispersed growth of a large collection of metal–organic framework (MOF) nanostructures within a series of commercially available mesoporous silica allowing to render MOFs into fluidized solid sorbents for CO2 capture from post-combustion flue gas in a fluidized-bed reactor.
Peptide/Cas9 nanostructures for ribonucleoprotein cell membrane transport and gene edition
The hydrazone modulation of a penetrating peptide carrier is reported as a suitable and straightforward strategy for the delivery of Cas9 inside living cells.
About this collection
This collection includes Chemical Science articles that have been selected for promotion with a full video abstract. These video abstracts give a short introduction to the area of research and explain the work being carried out in the paper, all accompanied by animations as an alternative way to learn about the research being published in the journal. The videos can be viewed on our social media channels, or in the Supplementary Information files for each paper.
