  • The chemical industry needs better framework conditions for solid growth

    Business is not going smoothly in Germany’s third largest industry. Production in the chemical-pharmaceutical industry stagnated in the 1st half 2016. Sales fell clearly, as compared with the previous year: With another drop in producer prices, sales of this industry declined by 3.5 percent to 90.4 more

  • Atmospheric chemistry on paper

    Normally computers speed up calculations. But with his new pen-and-paper formula Kevin Heng of the University of Bern gets his results thousands of times faster than using conventional computer codes. The astrophysicist calculates the abundances of molecules (known as atmospheric chemistry) in exopl more

  • Unconventional quasiparticles predicted in conventional crystals

    An international team of researchers has predicted the existence of several previously unknown types of quantum particles in materials. The particles — which belong to the class of particles known as fermions — can be distinguished by several intrinsic properties, such as their responses to applied more

A Brief Guide to Types of Organic Chemistry Formulae

Back to basics with today’s graphic, with a look at the different ways compounds in organic chemistry can be represented. Obviously, if you’re a chemist, these will all be second nature, but as was quite fairly pointed out with regards to the food chemistry graphics, if you’re not well versed in che more

A Guide to Simple Heterocycles in Organic Chemistry

We’ve already examined the functional groups that can be present in organic molecules in a previous post; here, we take a look one step further, at heterocycles. Heterocycles are hugely important in organic chemistry – they make up more than half of all known organic compounds. Caffeine is a prime e more

Benzene Derivatives in Organic Chemistry

Benzene is a hugely important compound in organic chemistry. It consists of six carbon atoms joined together in a ring, with a hydrogen atom bonded to each carbon; by replacing one or more of these hydrogens with a functional group, a large number of different compounds can be formed.

  • Perfect Coordination

    New drugs are developed, among other reasons, with the aim of reducing dosage and having more targeted active ingredients. For patients, this development is definitely beneficial. These ingredients are described as highly potent active ingredients. But what does highly potent mean? And how are these substances handled in production, and what checks are performed to ensure the personnel are protected? more

  • Towards nanomedicine

    Diamond nanoparticles or nanodiamonds (NDs) behave several essential assets for biomedical applications: their very weak cytotoxicity and genotoxicity [1], their carbon-related surface chemistry for covalent functionalization of targeting or labeling moieties (oligonucleotides, proteins, fluorescent dyes, peptidic nucleic acids [2],…) and their tunable surface charge toward drug delivery [3]. In particular, detonation nanodiamonds synthetized by explosion [4] combine all this possibilities in a primary size of 5 nm, compatible with kidney filtration for an expected easier elimination. Nevertheless, these NDs are extremely sensitive to their surface state. more

  • Water instead of mineral oil

    Optical active substances made from chiral catalysis form the basis of many drugs. Expensive precious-metal catalysts are required for the chemical production, which due to their thermal instability decompose at high temperatures and can therefore only be used once. The innovative process of DexLeChem GmbH makes it possible for the first time to use these precious-metal catalysts made from rhodium, ruthenium or iridium more than once, without modifying them. At the same time, reaction occurs in aqueous solutions instead of mineral-oil-based solvents, which increases the sustainability of the process. This is a milestone in catalysis and a real opportunity for the pharmaceutical industry. more
