Antimicrobial PEGtides: A Modular Poly(ethylene glycol)-Based Peptidomimetic Approach to Combat Bacteria

Regardless of their excessive efficiency, the widespread implementation of pure antimicrobial peptides remains to be difficult resulting from their low scalability and excessive hemolytic actions. Herein, we deal with these points by using a modular method to imitate the important thing amino acid residues current in antimicrobial peptides, resembling lysine, leucine, and serine, however on … Read more

Synthesis, Properties, and Derivatization of Poly(dihydrogermane): A Germanium-Based Polyethylene Analogue

Polygermanes are germanium-based analogues of polyolefins and possess polymer backbones made up catenated Ge atoms. Within the current contribution we report the preparation of a germanium polyethylene analogue, polydihydrogermane (GeH2)n, by way of two simple approaches that contain topotactic deintercalation of Ca ions from the CaGe Zintl section. The ensuing (GeH2)n possesses morphologically dependent chemical … Read more
