The various phases of the scientific activity of prof. PLL

(not complete).

for the papers published monthly in WSI, see at the end of this.

 

1. synthetic polymers, conformational studies.

The scientific activity begins with the thesis work at the Pisa University, under the direction of prof. Piero Pino, on isotactic vinyl polymers, with a thesis work carried out in (at that time) Leningrad, Soviet Union, in the group of prof. Volkenstein, under the direction of Dr. T. Birsthein. This work was continued in Pisa, with emphasis on optically active isotactic vinyl polymers and their low molecular weight compounds, also with interest in copolymers, as described in the first 11 papers. See also papers 14,16, 18, 20, 25,31, 49, 64, 77, 82, 88.

 

2. Enzymology and dehydrogenases

Following ca. 2 years of postdoc work in Eugene, Oregon, in the group of molecular biology of prof. Sidney Bernhard, there are work on alcohol dehydrogenase from horse liver, other enzymes and other dehydrogenases (in particular octopine dehydrogenases), carried out with stopped-flow techniques and fluorescence work, see papers 12,13, all the other till 32, (excluded the ones mentioned under 1) but see also 37, 40, 41,47, 48,49, 51,52, 53,54a, 56,57, 62, 87, 90, 93
