Magnetic control of MOF crystal orientation and alignment (2017)
Journal Article
Cheng, F., Marshall, E. S., Young, A. J., Robinson, P. J., Bouillard, J. S. G., Adawi, A. M., …Chin, J. M. (2017). Magnetic control of MOF crystal orientation and alignment. Chemistry : a European journal, 23(62), 15578-15582. doi:10.1002/chem.201703812

Most metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) possess anisotropic properties, the full exploitation of which necessitates a general strategy for the controllable orientation of such MOF crystals. Current methods largely rely upon layer-by-layer MOF epitaxy or... Read More

Hauser, C. A., Reithofer, M. R., Chung, J. E., Hauser, C. A. E., Kurisawa, M., Lee, F., …Lim, J. (2015). Synthesis and bioactivity of a conjugate composed of green tea catechins and hyaluronic acid. Polymer chemistry, 6(24), (4462-4472). doi:10.1039/c5py00495k. ISSN 1759-9954

(-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is a green tea polyphenol that has several biological activities, including anti-cancer activity and anti-inflammation. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring polysaccharide that is widely used as a biomat... Read More

Ligation of anti-cancer drugs to self-assembling ultrashort peptides by click chemistry for localized therapy (2013)
Journal Article
Lam, D. H., Reithofer, M. R., Chan, K., Gopalan, B., Hauser, C. A. E., Joshi, M., …Wang, S. (2014). Ligation of anti-cancer drugs to self-assembling ultrashort peptides by click chemistry for localized therapy. Chemical science, 5(2), (625-630). doi:10.1039/c3sc51930a. ISSN 2041-6520

Self-assembling ultrashort peptides from aliphatic amino acids were functionalized with platinum anti-cancer drugs by click chemistry. Oxaliplatin-derived hybrid peptide hydrogels with up to 40% drug loading were tested for localized breast cancer th... Read More
