Water helps assembly of biofibers that could capture sunlight

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 - 18:52 in Physics & Chemistry

Water can serve a previously undiscovered role to help micelles coalesce to spontaneously form long fibers, new research shows. This study could help scientists to understand how light-harvesting molecules are incorporated into the micelle fiber as it assembles, which would be a key step to understanding some forms of artificial photosynthesis.
