We have published an article in Carbohydrate Polymers about the structure of an inclusion compound prepared by crystallizing amylose in the presence of ibuprofen, a well-known anti-inflammatory drug. Using data from solid-state NMR, and electron and X-ray diffraction, we have proposed a molecular model allowing to locate the ibuprofen guest molecules in the lattice of amylose helices.

The nanostructure and properties of regenerated cellulose fibers depends on the spinning process. We revealed different structures by collecting small angle neutron scattering data on a series of fibers exposed to heavy water vapours. Click on the title for more information.

In this study supervised by Frédéric Pignon (LRP, Grenoble), the complementary use of small-angle scattering of light (structure at the microscopic scale) and X-rays (structure at the nano scale) allowed us to revisit the mechanism of orientation under flow of suspensions of cellulose nanocrystals in the liquid-crystal phase.

Redouane Borsali, CNRS Research Director at Cermav, was interviewed in the latest newsletter from the North-East Asia CNRS office (on February 2021) about his research activities and the launch of an international research project with National Taiwan University (NTU) entitled "New ultra-nanostructured and stretchable biomaterials for design of bio-electronic devices ”.

Using a new method, we have optimized the regioselective grafting of gold nanoparticles at the reducing end of cellulose nanocrystals. The hybrid nanoparticles produced are interesting for designing materials with innovative optical properties and reveal information on the in vivo organization of the microfibrils they originate from.

Such thesis is entitled "Bioinformatic study of lectins: new classification and prediction in genomes" and is co-directed by Dr. Anne Imberty (Cermav) and Dr/Prof. Frédérique Lisacek (Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics). Click on the title for more information.
