Light/non-fat dairy product (regular or Greek) - plain is best, flavoured varieties can have additional supermolecule
Of those, about a tenth coalesce into a supermolecule
These act as the junctions, or corners, of the supermolecules
and allow many short DNA sequences to be linked together in a modular way.
Goddard believes that carbon nanotubes could be used to design supermolecules
for water purification.
Today, chemists are no longer restricted to the realm of covalent bonds, but have also been exploring the territory of supramolecular interactions, constructing supermolecules
that exhibit specific properties such as auto-assembly, molecular recognition, transformation, transport, and signaling .
Specific topics include controlled release and materials conversion using nanostructured supermolecules
, supermolecular systems based on dielectric elastomer actuators for biomimetic and biomedical applications, optical properties of self-assembled colloidal photonic crystals doped with citrate-capped gold nanoparticles, tuneable micro- and nano-periodic structures in urethane/urea networks, biomimetic apatite coatings, mimicking biomineralization processes, molecular engineering of phenyleneethynylenes towards specific molecular and supramolecular organization for optoelectronics, microstructural influence on flexure strength of a ceromer reinforced by polyethylene and glass fibers, and fundamentals of the nanocrystal formation from supersaturated solutions.
75-78) These diverse efforts focused on the selective formation of discrete supermolecules
from complementary receptor-substrate hydrogen bonding pairs, such as bartituric acid and tinaminopyrimidine units, 2,6-diaminopyridine and 2,6-pyridinedicarbonyl units, and carboxylic acid and pyridine units.
