Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Aromatic peptide amphiphiles: significance of the Fmoc moiety

Fleming, Scott and Debnath, Sisir and Frederix, Pim W J M and Tuttle, Tell and Ulijn, Rein V (2013) Aromatic peptide amphiphiles: significance of the Fmoc moiety. Chemical Communications, 49 (90). pp. 10587-10589.

Aromatic peptide amphiphile hydrogelators commonly utilise the fluorenyl-9-methoxycarbonyl moiety as an N-terminal capping group. Material properties and spectroscopic techniques show the influence of alternative linkers between the fluorenyl moiety and the peptide. This study establishes whether methoxycarbonyl is an optimal or mainly convenient linker, for this class of self-assembling systems.
