Artificial Transporters

We attempt to create a future molecular scaffold, with which highly efficient and selective chloride ion transportation will be feasible. Supramolecular chemistry derived polyamide protein mimetics (foldamers) were developed with various structural and functional properties. We aim to utilize such constructs for the transportation of ions through membranes. The synthesis of foldamers will be carried out in a highly efficient continuous flow peptide synthetizer.
