Powerful combination of deuteration and neutron scattering used to characterise structure of molecules on surface of nanoparticles
A large collaboration of scientists have used a powerful new approach to overcome the challenging task of characterising the structure of self-assembling organic molecules on the surface of nanoparticles.

Detergents are commonly used to stabilise membrane proteins in order to study their structures. The Chemical Deuteration Team of the National Deuteration Facility has developed a new method for the synthesis of common detergents that allows for selective deuteration such that they are invisible when studied using small angle neutron scattering, leaving only the signal from the protein of interest.Learn more »
Evidence of quantum state in spin cluster chain predicted by Nobel Prize recipient found in magnetic mineral
Nuclear techniques at ANSTO have helped to confirm a quantum spin phenomena, a Haldane phase, in a magnetic material, that has potential to be used as a measurement model for quantum computation.
