• Enzyme Shielding in an Enzyme-thin and Soft Organosilica Layer 

      Correro, Maria Rita; Moridi, Negar; Schützinger, Hansjörg; Sykora, Sabine; Ammann, Erik; Peters, E. Henrik; Dudal, Yves; Corvini, Philippe; Shahgaldian, Patrick (2016)
      The fragile nature of most enzymes is a major hindrance to their use in industrial processes. Herein, we describe a synthetic chem. strategy to produce hybrid org.​/inorg. nanobiocatalysts; it exploits the self-​assembly ...
    • Immobilization of an artificial imine reductase within silica nanoparticles improves its performance 

      Hestericová, Martina; Correro, Maria Rita; Lenz, Markus; Corvini, Philippe; Shahgaldian, Patrick; Ward, Thomas R. (2016)
      Silica nanoparticles equipped with an artificial imine reductase (biotinylated iridium complex conjugated with streptavidin) display marked redn. activity toward cyclic imines and NAD. The method, based on immobilization ...

    • Supramolecular enzyme engineering in complex nanometer-thin biomimetic organosilica layers 

      Correro, Maria Rita; Takacs, Michael; Sykora, Sabine; Corvini, Philippe; Shahgaldian, Patrick (2016-09)
      The use of enzymes in industrial processes is often hampered by their limited stability under operational conditions. As enzymes' function and stability are directly correlated to their three-​dimensional structure, ...
