Controlling enzymatic reactions by geometry in a biomimetic nanoscale network
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2006

We demonstrate that a transition from a compact geometry (sphere) to a structured geometry (several spheres connected by nanoconduits) in nanotube-vesicle networks (NVNs) induces an ordinary enzyme-catalyzed reaction to display wavelike properties. The reaction dynamics can be controlled directly by the geometry of the network, and such networks can be used to generate wavelike patterns in product formation. The results have bearing for understanding catalytic reactions in biological systems as well as for designing emerging wet chemical nanotechnological devices.
