How do you repair the world's smallest machines? The best way is to let them do it on their own. Many nano-machines are made of artificial DNA building blocks, and a group from the e-conversion cluster has now shown that this material can replace its own defective parts by itself.
LMU researchers simplify the MINFLUX microscope and have succeeded in differentiating molecules that are extremely close together and tracking their dynamics.
If the stacking structure of the “miracle material” COF is even slightly shifted, its properties change dramatically. This happens more often than assumed, as LMU-based chemists from the e-conversion cluster were able to demonstrate.
LMU researchers have developed a novel type of nanoparticle that efficiently and selectively kills cancer cells, thus opening up new therapeutic options for the treatment of tumors.
