Automation of Bio-Atomic Force Microscope Measurements on Hundreds of C. albicans Cells Childérick Severac*1, Sergio Proa-Coronado*1,2,3, Cécile Formosa-Dague4, Adrian Martinez-Rivas3,5, Etienne Dague2 1ITAV-CNRS, Université de Toulouse, CNRS, Toulouse, France, 2LAAS-CNRS, Université de Toulouse, CNRS, Toulouse, France, 3ENCB, Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN), Mexico City, Mexico, 4TBI, Université de Toulouse, CNRS, INRA, INSA, Toulouse, France, 5CIC, Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN), Mexico City, Mexico This protocol aims to automate AFM measurements on hundreds of microbial cells. First, microbes are immobilized into PDMS stamp microstructures and then force spectroscopy measurements are performed automatically on hundreds of immobilized cells.
Versatile CO2 Transformations into Complex Products: A One-pot Two-step Strategy Sarah Desmons*1,2, Dan Zhang*1, Angelica Mejia Fajardo1, Sebastien Bontemps1 1LCC-CNRS, Université de Toulouse, CNRS, 2LISBP, Université de Toulouse, CNRS, INRA, INSA CO2 transformations are conducted in a one-pot two-step procedure for the synthesis of complex molecules. The selective 4 e- reduction of CO2 with a hydroborane reductant affords a reactive and versatile bis(boryl)acetal intermediate which is subsequently involved in condensation reaction or carbene-mediated C-C coupling generation.
