Chemical synthesis with artificial intelligence

03-Apr-2018

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 ...

Bidentate Chelates with Larger Spacers

Chelating Lewis acids prepared by double hydroalumination of dialkynylsilanes

10-Nov-2011

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 ...

Unexpected carbon composition discovered in world's oldest diamonds

Did life on earth begin earlier than we have hitherto believed?

04-Jul-2008

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 ...
