  2. 2. RNA in model lipid membranes - interactions in bulk and at surfaces

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Agnes Michanek; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ssRNA; RNA origami; dsDNA; selfassembly phospholipids; model membranes; monolayer; QCM-D; DSC; Neutron reflectometry; hydrophobic interaction; cationic surfactants; sphingosine; phase behavior;

    Abstract : The work presented in the thesis “RNA in model lipid membranes- interactions in bulk and at surfaces” aims to characterize the interaction between RNA and model membranes with different properties as well as to determine if ssRNA associate with model membranes in different ways. Several techniques have been used to characterize these systems, including quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D), Langmuir film balance in combination with neutron reflectometry and fluorescence microscopy as well as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC).

  3. 3. Electronic and Geometric Structure of Phthalocyanines on Metals

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Masumeh-Nina Shariati; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; monolayer; multilayer; metal-free phthalocyanine; metal phthalocyanine; interaction; intermolecular; adsorbate-substrate; XPS; XAS; STM; DFT; alkali; metallization;

    Abstract : Adsorption of monolayers and multilayers of metal-free and metal phthalocyanines molecules on metal surfaces has been investigated using complementary microscopic and synchrotron-based spectroscopic techniques. It was observed by STM measurements that at monolayer coverage the adsorption direction of the metal-free phthalocyanine molecules with respect to the gold surface vary as a function of temperature, i.
