Researchers succeed in gaining access to an important chemical compound
Since the discovery of the first homoleptic metal carbonyl complex Ni(CO)4 more than 130 years ago, scientists try to obtain further such compounds formed from a carbon monoxide molecule and a metal that are important for basic research as well as applications. The last new compound of this type ...
Researchers establish a benchmark for accurate determination of internal dimensions within individual molecules
A worldwide study involving 20 laboratories has established and standardized a method to measure exact distances within individual biomolecules, down to the scale of one millionth of the width of a human hair. The new method represents a major improvement of a technology called single-molecule ...
Innovative biohybrid systems with information processing functionality
Scientists from the University of Freiburg have developed materials systems that are composed of biological components and polymer materials and are capable of perceiving and processing information. These biohybrid systems were engineered to perform certain functions, such as the counting signal ...
New tetrazines with improved characteristics
Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Union (EU) are funding the start-up venture "Tetra-Tag" with an EXIST Business Start-up Grant. Two chemists, Dr. Fabian Ehret and Dr. Vasileios Filippou, and the economist Patrick ...
Researchers have developed a method for measuring soft, structured surfaces using optical forces
Surfaces separate outside from inside, control chemical reactions, and regulate the exchange of light, heat, and moisture. They thus play a special role in nature and technology. In the journal Nature Nanotechnology, the Freiburg physicist Prof. Dr. Alexander Rohrbach and his former PhD candidate ...
Freiburg research team develops artificial surfaces insects cannot stick to
Beetles, cockroaches, and ants will have a harder time walking on facades or air conditioners in the future – thanks to the bio-inspired, anti-adhesive surfaces Prof. Dr. Thomas Speck, Dr. Bettina Prüm, and Dr. Holger Bohn are developing together with the Plant Biomechanics Group of the ...
Freiburg Physicists show why quantum transport can be close to optimal even in disordered molecular structures
Geometric properties that enable waves to overlap and reinforce each other even in disordered molecular structures: A team led by the theoretical physicist Dr. Florian Mintert and the biophysicist Dr. Francesco Rao, junior fellows of the School of Soft Matter Research at the Freiburg Institute ...
A series of epoxy resins has been synthesised by a team of chemists from Germany, who used renewable starting materials for a more environmentally friendly approach than conventional methods. The resulting epoxy resins have highly desirable mechanical properties, such as high stiffness, that have ...
Freiburg Research Team Develops Method for Sustainable Use of CO2
It is beyond dispute that carbon dioxide (CO2) has an effect on global warming as a greenhouse gas, but we still pump tons and tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every day. A research team at the Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) led by the chemist Prof. Dr. Ingo Krossing has now developed a ...
Physicists at MPQ succeed in resolving the internal dynamics of individual molecules using UV femtosecond laser pulses
Nowadays, large laser systems provide ultra-short light pulses of very high intensity which – in principle – allow the imaging of matter and its dynamics on atomic scales, down to a single molecule or a virus. However, current methods fall short in efficiency to overlap a target molecule in a ...
