How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Solubilizing agents are widely used to extract poorly soluble compounds from biological matrices. Aqueous solutions of surfactants and hydrotropes are commonly used as solubilizers, however, the underlying mechanism that determines their action is still roughly understood. Among these, ionic liquids (IL) are often used not only for solubilization o...
Hydrogels have captivated the attention of several research and industry segments, including bioengineering, tissue engineering, implantable/wearable sensors and actuators, bioactive agent delivery, food processing, and industrial processes optimization. A common limitation of these systems is their fixed shape. The concept of hydrogel moldability...


Question (1)
I have a GROMACS trajectory of a system with various components and I want to follow a particular molecule (from which I have various in the topology) and the what other molecules appear in a defined radius around it throughout this trajectory. Specifically, I want to follow this single residue through time and the molecules that appear close to it in order to see how it enters micelles and orientates in those.
With the selection tool in visual molecular dynamics (VMD) I'm able to easily select a single residue, but not able to only see that residue and define a radius around it during the whole trajectory.
Thanks for the help!

The goal of this project is to recover valuable metals, such as lithium, nickel, manganese and cobalt, from the black mass of Li-ion batteries, by using electrochemically-assisted means. With this we intend to obtain a more selective dissolution of key metals, from which solution these will be separated by 'green' liquid-liquid extraction processes. Finally, electrochemical means will be used once again for final recovery of the target metals from each solution containing an enriched amount of the latter.
