The supramolecular structure of melanin

Abstract:

The melanins are an important class of multifunctional bio-macromolecules with fascinating and potentially useful electronic and optoelectronic properties. They are one of the last major bio-macromolecular systems where we do not know how the constituent molecules organise. This knowledge gap hinders attempts to map their properties and function and is a particular issue in understanding their roles in human photoprotection and melanoma cancer. In this article we provide strong and direct evi...
