Breakthrough in separating plastic waste

Machines can distinguish 12 different types of plastic thereby separate plastics according to their chemical composition

07-Jan-2022

In contrast to common perceptions, plastic is in no way near one material. Rather, it is a combination of many materials (polymers) with different chemical compounds and additives such as pigments or fibres, depending on its use. It is very difficult to tell the difference between different types ...

New method for producing synthetic DNA

Chemically synthesized short DNA sequences are extremely important ingredients with countless uses

18-May-2021

The DNA sequences produced are also called oligonucleotides. These are widely used for disease identification, for the manufacture of oligonucleotide-based drugs, and for several other medical and biotechnological applications. The high demand for oligonucleotides therefore requires an efficient ...

Nanobubbles in nanodroplets

Researchers investigate ultrafast reaction of superfluid helium triggerd by extreme ultraviolet laser pulses

10-Jan-2020

A team headed by Professor Frank Stienkemeier at Freiburg’s Institute of Physics and Dr. Marcel Mudrich, professor at the University of Aarhus in Denmark, has observed the ultrafast reaction of nanodroplets of helium after excitation with extreme ultraviolet radiation (XUV) using a free-electron ...

How frogs' tongues become sticky

Research team investigates the surface chemistry of the frog sticky-tongue mechanism

29-Nov-2018

Frogs' capture their preywiththestickymucuscoveringtheir tongues, but this mucusisn't inherently adhesive.Frogmucus is thought to be pressure-sensitive, with tongue retraction strain triggering adhesion. A research team from Oregan State University, Aarhus University and Kiel University ...

Simpler and safer method for handling a useful but foul-smelling gas in chemical synthesis

25-Sep-2018

The chemical element sulfur is an important constituent in many pharmaceuticals and, consequently, it is desirable to be able to introduce sulfur-containing fragments efficiently in a broad range of chemical compounds. The Skrydstrup team provides an effective and safe way for introducing a ...

A patent-free playground

Researchers and industrial companies collaborate to create a new Open Science platform

01-Aug-2017

Along with a number of leading Danish industrial companies, Aarhus University has opted out of the patent rat race in a new collaboration on industrially relevant basic research. Researchers and companies from all over Denmark publish all their results and data on the innovative Open Science ...

Bold research into recycling CO2

02-Oct-2015

The scientific aims are bold, but the gains can be enormous. The new CADIAC research centre at Aarhus University will be the most ambitious venture in the world to date to find the best methods to convert CO2 into medicine, plastic and useful chemicals. Even on Mars. CO2, carbon dioxide, carbonic ...

In chemical reactions, water adds speed without heat

21-May-2012

An international team of researchers has discovered how adding trace amounts of water can tremendously speed up chemical reactions—such as hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis—in which hydrogen is one of the reactants, or starting materials. Led by Manos Mavrikakis, the Paul A. Elfers professor of ...
