• term
  • The term macromolecule ( macro- + molecule ) was coined by Nobel laureate Hermann Staudinger in the 1920s, although his first relevant publication on this field only mentions high molecular compounds (in excess of 1,000 atoms). (wikipedia.org)
  • solution
  • For the first X-ray crystallographic solution of a macromolecule , myoglobin, Kendrew and coworkers (1958) built brass models at a scale of 5 cm/Ã…ngstrom. (umass.edu)
  • This comes from macromolecules excluding other molecules from a large part of the volume of the solution, thereby increasing the effective concentrations of these molecules. (wikipedia.org)
