Chemistry World Today highlights Shipman Group Research into 'Synthetic strategy exploits fluxional nitrogen to deliver three chiral centres for the price of one'
Professor Matthew Gibson has been awarded a prestigious €2M ERC consolidator grant for his work on new materials to help transport protein and cell-based therapies. The project ICE_PACK will support a cross disciplinary team of researchers based in both the Chemistry Department and also in Warwick Medical School.
The end of reapplying sunscreen could be on the horizon after scientists found a molecule which can ‘dance’ away the harmful sunlight.
Plants stay safe from the Sun because they hold a molecule which absorbs ultraviolet light and uses the energy to shake at a speed of 100 billion twists per second, which expends the radiation before it can cause harm.
Scientists at the University of Warwick searched for a structure with similar properties and discovered that diethyl sinapate closely mimics the process when exposed to sunlight.
