Hundreds of polymers – which could kill drug-resistant superbugs in novel ways – can be produced and tested using light, using a method developed at the University of Warwick
- First ever detailed pictures of conjugated polymers – which conduct electricity and are highly sought after – captured with novel visualisation technique developed by University of Warwick
- New approach realises Richard Feynman’s famous remark that it would be very easy to make an analysis of any complicated chemical substance; all one would have to do would be to look at it and see where the atoms are”
- Polymers need alternating pattern of “A” monomer & smaller “B” monomer to conduct (ABAB), but the researchers discovered surprising gaps & defects in polymer structure –an ABBA pattern
The UK’s first 1 GHz solid-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer is on its way to the University of Warwick, thanks to £8 million from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
A new state-of-the-art Cryo-Electron Microscope (Cryo-EM) facility that will advance the understanding of the processes of life has been officially opened.
Bacteria could be programmed to efficiently produce drugs, thanks to breakthrough research into synthetic biology using engineering principles, from the University of Warwick and the University of Surrey.
