A Role for Water Molecules in DNA?Ligand Minor Groove Recognition

Targeting the minor groove of DNA through binding to a small molecule has long been considered an important molecular-recognition strategy in biology. A wide range of synthetic heterocyclic molecules bind noncovalently in the minor groove of the double helix and… Read moreA Role for Water Molecules in DNA?Ligand Minor Groove Recognition

Structural Color Films with Lotus Effects, Superhydrophilicity, and Tunable Stop-Bands

The structural blue color of a Morpho butterfly originates from the diffraction of light and interference effects due to the presence of the microstructures on the wing of the butterfly. Structural color on the surface of a damselfish reversibly changes… Read moreStructural Color Films with Lotus Effects, Superhydrophilicity, and Tunable Stop-Bands

Fluid bed drying of guarana ( Paullinia cupana HBK) extract: Effect of process factors on caffeine content

The aim of this study was to study the convective drying of the hydroalcoholic extracts obtained from powdered guarana seeds in a spouted bed dryer. The influence of process variables, such as the convective airflow rate, extract feed rate,; air… Read moreFluid bed drying of guarana ( Paullinia cupana HBK) extract: Effect of process factors on caffeine content
