pheomelanin is the prevalent pigment in red hair and fair skin, and has been shown to be related to many diseases including Parkinson’s disease, skin cancer etc. However, pheomelanin presents a significant challenge for fundamental characterization, because it is a highly crosslinked, insoluble material with no sequence-controlled structure. In this paper, we investigate different syntheticContinue reading “Our Paper on Synthetic Pheomelanin is Accepted in Chemical Science!”
