Nanoscience Seminar: Julia Ortony, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Controlling conformational dynamics in molecular nanofibers Speaker: Julia Ortony Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Abstract Most modern examples of supramolecular nanofibers are peptide-based and demonstrate a range of internal conformational dynamics that dictate their properties and functions. Such nanofibers are generally fragile, exhibiting rapid molecular exchange and hydrolysis, are usually unstable upon drying and otherwise are hygroscopic. We designed and synthesized non-biological, mechanically robust self-assembled nanofibers that are air-stable and resistant to chemical degradation. We find that these nanofibers exhibit…
