Magdalena’s Scientific Journey in Spain: Unveiling the Secrets of Spectroelectrochemistry

In a promising start to the year, Magdalena embarked on a 6-month research internship in Spain. Her destination: the University of Burgos, where she would delve into the fascinating intersection of electrochemical measurements and spectroscopic techniques. Magdalena’s passion for combining these fields led her to join the research group of Professor Alvaro Conlia, a renowned expert in spectroelectrochemical […]

Very small changes in the peptide sequence alter the redox properties of Aβ(11-16)-Cu(II) and pAβ(11-16)-Cu(II) β-amyloid complexes

Sometimes publishing doesn’t go according to plan…. Our newly published article in J. Electroanal. Chem. was supposed to have been published before the follow-up in ChemElectroChem. We thought it made sense to first study the shorter amyloid and then follow with a study of the longer one. Some review delays […]

The Influence of Coordination Mode on the Redox Properties of Copper Complexes with Aβ(3-16) and its Pyroglutamate Counterpart pAβ(3-16)

Over the last year, Magda has been working with bachelor student Natalia to investigate the redox behaviour of different β-amyloids. In her recently published paper she demonstrates a significant difference in the redox behaviour of copper complexes with peptides associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is a neurodegenerative disorder and […]

The spectroelectrochemical behaviour of 1,4‐dimethoxypillar[5]arene (P5A) and its monomer in different organic solvents

Pillararenes were introduced as a novel class of macrocyclig host molecules in 2008 when 1,4-dimethoxypillar[5]arene (P5A) was synthesised. The pillararenes are similar in structure to the better known cyclodextrins or calixarenes and they can also form host-guest complexes with smallish molecules that can fit into their cavities. In a recent […]
