An assembly line for medications

Efavirenz can now be produced more cost efficiently and sustainable utilizing continuous flow chemistry.


Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPICI) and the Freie Universität Berlin have succeeded in developing better methods of producing APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients). As a result, Efavirenz, one of the preferred agents for treating HIV in combination ...


Cheaper, greener way to make new drugs


This alternative approach to creating artificial organic molecules, called bioretrosynthesis, was first proposed four years ago by Brian Bachmann, associate professor of chemistry at Vanderbilt University. Now Bachmann and a team of collaborators report that they have succeeded in using the ...


Birch bark compounds offer a wealth of business opportunities


Birch is a standout wood species: Half of the weight of birch outer bark consists of betulin and fatty acids of suberin. These compounds can replace pine oil and resin in technochemical products. They can also be used in pharmaceuticals. VTT is researching and developing the potential for ...

Turkeys inspire smartphone-capable early warning system for toxins


Some may think of turkeys as good for just lunch meat and holiday meals. But bioengineers at the University of California, Berkeley, saw inspiration in the big birds for a new type of biosensor that changes color when exposed to chemical vapors. This feature makes the sensors valuable detectors ...

Spectrometer reads vibrations between atoms


A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards. By measuring the vibrations between atoms using femtosecond-long laser pulses, the Rice lab of chemist Junrong Zheng is able to discern the ...

Chemists develop innovative nano-sensors for multiple proteins

Test strips bearing gold nano-particles as sensor elements can detect numerous proteins simultaneously


Chemists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have developed a new method for parallel protein analysis that is, in principle, capable of identifying hundreds or even thousands of different proteins. It could be used to detect the presence of viruses and identify their type in tiny ...

UGA researchers develop rapid diagnostic test for pathogens, contaminants


Using nanoscale materials, researchers at the University of Georgia have developed a single-step method to rapidly and accurately detect viruses, bacteria and chemical contaminants. In a series of studies, the scientists were able to detect compounds such as lactic acid and the protein albumin in ...


Scientists create world’s first ‘super-twisted’ light


Glasgow scientists have created ‘super-twisted’ light for the first time. The research team at the University of Glasgow twisted the light like a corkscrew by using a polarising filter, before shining it onto a specially shaped piece of gold to create the world’s first ‘super twisting’. Super ...


Carbon nanotubes form ultrasensitive biosensor to detect proteins


A cluster of carbon nanotubes coated with a thin layer of protein-recognizing polymer form a biosensor capable of using electrochemical signals to detect minute amounts of proteins, which could provide a crucial new diagnostic tool for the detection of a range of illnesses, a team of Boston ...


LANXESS builds new plant in Germany

EUR 30 million invested in new chemical production facility in Saxony-Anhalt


LANXESS AG is building a new chemical plant at its site in Bitterfeld, Germany. This marks the specialty chemicals group’s move into a new segment of the water treatment business. The company is investing a total of around EUR 30 million in this pioneering project. LANXESS plans to develop and ...
