Invisible deuterated detergents for studying structures of membrane proteins

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.

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.
