by Professor Wilhelm Huck of the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis, University of Cambridge The natural world uses macromolecules to store and exchange information, provide structural integrity, convert chemical to mechanical energy and efficiently catalyze chemical transformations. To bridge the gap between biology and nanofabrication, we focus on surfaces that achieve properties through complex structures […]
