How fine bubbles lead to more efficient catalysts

Newly discovered effect boosts productivity of green hydrogen transport processes

21-Nov-2022

Catalysts are of utmost relevance for the production of chemicals and energy storage with hydrogen. Researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (HI ERN) and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now discovered that the formation of bubbles ...

Nano-Rust: Smart Additive for Autonomous Temperature Control

A new, versatile method for temperature monitoring in materials

11-Jul-2022

The right temperature matters – whether in technical processes, for the quality of food and medicines, or the lifetime of electronic components and batteries. For this purpose, temperature indicators record (un)desired temperature increases that can be read out later. Researchers in the group led ...

More than a coffee ring

Researchers develop method that promotes uniform drying of particle-containing liquids

10-Jun-2022

What do coffee, red wine and ink have in common? The stubborn stains they leave behind. Anyone who has ever knocked over a cup of coffee will know that coffee dries in an unusual pattern, the stain is lighter at the center but it gets darker around the perimeter, an effect known as the coffee ...

Green hydrogen glows pink

Researchers develop a sensor to make hydrogen visible

14-Mar-2022

Researchers at the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy and the Chair of Thermal Process Technology at FAU have succeeded in making invisible hydrogen gas visible to the naked eye in order to prevent the risk of fires and explosions. The key to their research is what is known as supraparticles, ...

Using magnetic microparticles to mark objects unambiguously and tackle counterfeiting

‘Smart rust is cheap to make and ecologically sound’

10-Jun-2021

We can only guarantee that objects are manufactured in an environmentally friendly, socially sustainable way and recycled correctly if all raw materials and intermediate products are marked unambiguously using a tamper-proof method. The current optical (barcode) and electromagnetic (RFID chip) ...

Coming a step closer to the dream of nanotechnology

Simple synthesis of seeds for standardised carbon nanotubes

02-Sep-2019

Synthesising single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is one of the greatest challenges faced by materials science. They can be synthesised using precursor molecules, so-called seeds, which determine growth. However, this synthesis has not been well researched up to now. Researchers at FAU have now ...
