One of the greatest global challenges is the efficient use of renewable sources in order to meet the increasing demand for energy and feedstock chemicals in the future. In this context, biomass is a promising alternative to existing fossil sources such as coal or oil. Cellulose plays a decisive ...
A team of chemists at the University of Münster led by Prof. Frank Glorius have developed a new, simple synthetic method for producing fluorinated piperidines –which had previously been very difficult. These compounds play a major role in the development of new active ingredients. Synthetic ...
Symmetrical cleavage of disulphides is fast and biocompatible
A team of researchers led by Prof. Frank Glorius and Michael Teders from the University of Münster and by Prof. Dirk Guldi from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg have presented a new chemical reaction path which may prove to be of interest both for research and for the production of active ...
The board game Go was long considered to be a bastion reserved for human players due to its complexity. Nowadays, however, the world’s best players no longer have any chance of winning against the “AlphaGo” software. Researchers at the University of Münster have now demonstrated that the recipe ...
Sought-after compounds readily accessible for the first time
Dyes, pharmaceuticals, and functional materials – all of these products are generally based on innovative molecules made by chemists. For their production several chemical reactions are available to the expert, however, limitations remain. For example, fluorinated compounds, molecules that ...
Researchers overcome limiting factor on the way to an optical quantum computer
Optical quantum computers are what people are pinning their hopes on for tomorrow’s computer technology – whether for tap-proof data encryption, ultrafast calculations involving enormous quantities of data or so-called quantum simulation, which allows highly complex systems to be reproduced on ...
Nature can do it, and chemists in the lab often dream of doing it: producing substances simply and ecologically – as far as possible without any undesirable side-products. A team of researchers from Münster University has now succeeded in turning to its advantage a chemical reaction which takes ...
Chelating Lewis acids prepared by double hydroalumination of dialkynylsilanes
Molecular oligoacceptors (chelating Lewis acids) are interesting compounds that are potentially applicable in phase-transfer processes, catalysis, or molecular recognition. Compounds with two or more coordinatively unsaturated tricoordinate aluminium or gallium atoms in a single molecule are ...
Did life on earth begin earlier than we have hitherto believed?
While examining the oldest diamonds in the world, a group of researchers, including Martina Menneken and Dr. Thorsten Geisler from the University of Münster (Institute of Mineralogy), have found evidence that life may have existed 4.25 billion years ago. Up to now, scientists have assumed that ...
Belgian researcher Filip Frederix won the first prize in the International DSM Awards for Chemistry and Technology. An international jury selected Filip Frederix, a doctoral student at the Catholic University of Louvain, for his research in the field of biosensors. His work involved the ...
