ION TRANSPORT ACROSS
LIPID BILAYERS

 

Synthetic ion transporters are seen as potential therapeutic agents able to restore malfunctions in the natural anion transport across biological membranes by proteins. Our work focuses on the physico-chemical characterization of transmembrane ion transport by organic carriers, with a focus on chloride transport.

SUPRAMOLECULAR
MICELLAR SYSTEM
S

 

Organic molecular receptors and catalysts are rarely water soluble. Micellar encapsulation is a elegant approach to render these systems "water-compatible", by-passing complex synthetic modifications and furthermore providing a protective environment to the receptor/catalyst.

NANOMATERIALS FOR
SENSING APPLICATIONS

 

Nano-bioconjugates combine the exceptional properties of  nanomaterials,  such as the LSPR band of gold and silver nanostructures, with those of biological macromolecules. They  are valuable tools which can lead to sensors with extreme selectivity and sensitivity or to smart Drug Delivery Systems and theranostic agents.
