Enantioresolution is important for pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries. However, enantiomer separation involves complex analytical techniques as well as specialized equipment and expert personnel. This complex sample treatment results in high time costs and potential biases in the quantitative determination. Researchers from the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) of Radboud University have presented a method for determination and quantification of D- and L-α-amino acids in complex mixtures down to submicromolar concentrations, with virtually no sample pretreatment.
T-shirts that retain the smell of deodorant, perfume, or aftershave while you work out. This new discovery by two chemists of a Radboud University spin-off is already for sale in their web shop. ‘We do research by day and ship packages by night.’
Guanqiao Li and Wen Chen, researchers within the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) of Radboud University, have both been awarded the IMM Best Thesis Award 2022. IMM yearly grants this prize to 1-3 PhD candidates in recognition of their excellent work performed by PhD students. The jury called the two theses of outstandingly high quality and clearly stand out.
