Author: ChemViews

Shunsaku Kimura and co-workers, Kyoto University, Japan, have won the 2010 Best Paper Award for their contribution on distance dependence of long-range electron transfer through helical peptides, published in the Journal of Peptide Science in 2008.

The article was chosen as the best paper from all research articles published in 2008 and 2009 in the journal. The Award is a cheque for 2000 Euros and a certificate, awarded at the European Peptide Symposium, which this year will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

ChemViews adds our congratulations to those of the Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Luis Moroder, the Guest Editor for the special issue on Peptides in Nanotechnolgy, Alberto Bianco, and Martin Rothlisberger, Executive Commissioning Editor, on this achievement.

    This article is the first footprint of the researches on distance dependence of electron transfer through helical peptides by Prof. Kimura and Dr. Morita, which leads to their latest article published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. They are among the researchers who expanded the subject of researches on electron transfer mechanism of organic molecules on metal substrates, which were limited in alkyl chains and conjugated molecules, to helical peptides.
