The luminescent bimetallic aggregates reversibly undergo dissociation or isomerization in solution and exhibit photoemission in the solid state (414 to 566 nm).

First 3D NMR spectrum

The first HNCO 3D NMR spectrum of uniformly 13C and 15N labeled ubiquitin was recorded in our Center for a new Biomolecular NMR Laboratory working under the leadership of N. R. Skrynnikov. The Laboratory stuff particularly thank our specialist M. A. Vovk.
