Paper on XPS of Amino Acids and Peptides

Having made some unexpected impact with our 2009 Surface and Interface Analysis paper on the XPS of saccharides (see here), we are now publishing a conceptually similar paper, this time dealing with the XPS of several amino acids and peptides derived from them:

Joint Paper on Surface-Functionalised Polymer Conduits for Peripheral Nerve Repair

A joint paper on surface-functionalised polymer film substrates used in conduits for peripheral nerve repair has been published.
