Departament d’Enginyeria Química and Barcelona Research Center for Multiscale Science and Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in collaboration with Laboratoire de Chimie Physique des Biomolecules (University of Namur, Belgium) today announced the publication of the results for the thermomechanical response of a representative porin used for the fabrication of smart biomimetic nanomembranes. These samples have been characterized using microcantilever technology and SCALA-CAL platform chosen for measuring and comparing with standard proteins. The work was co-authored by UPC professor Carlos Alemán along with Maximilien Lopes-Rodrigues, Anna Puiggalí-Jou, Didac Martí-Balleste and Luis J. del Valle from UPC, in collaboration with Catherine Michaux and Eric A. Perpète, both of University of Namur (Belgium).
