The cocoons, the silkworm itself, and the produced silk become colored when dye is incorporated into the silkworm feed. The concentration of dye in the produced silk changes based on how hydrophobic the dye is (increasing partition coefficient).
This paper is an exciting step towards mimicking the conformational changes observed in natural proteins without loss in solubility.
Accounts of Chemical Research recently published some additions and corrections to their article “Named Reactions Discovered and Developed by Women.” They were informed of another reaction unambiguously named … Continue reading
I hope most of us have experienced the wonder of watching fireflies lighting up on a warm summer evening.
