Bacterial Life Based on Fluorinated Amino Acids

In a league of its own, fluorine enables us to engineer biopolymers with highly desirable properties. The particular challenge in using it as a tool lies in our ability to juggle the interplay between the specific properties of the fluorinated building block and its responsiveness to the environment it is exposed to. 1, 2

One of our current projects studies the way in which not just biomolecules in t…
