Genetically harmful compounds detected in vegetable oils

Genotoxins discovered for the first time using a novel method


Vegetable oils rich in unsaturated fatty acids are highly recommended for a healthy diet. But these oils are not as healthy as thought: Prof. Dr. Gertrud Morlock, holder of the Chair of Life Sciences at Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU), together with PhD student Daniel Meyer, has for the ...

Zapping orange peel oil into new, pleasant aroma compounds

Generation of flavor-active compounds by electrochemical oxidation of limonene


As oranges are peeled, they spray a tangy, citrus scented oil into the air. The main compound in the fragrant mist is limonene, which can be collected from discarded peels and used in flavorings, perfumes and all-purpose cleaners. Now, researchers reporting in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and ...

Just a few atoms thick: New functional materials developed

Using the smallest "construction set" in the world, a research team is designing new materials for computer chips, light-emitting diodes and solar cells


They are 50,000 times thinner than a human hair, and just a few atoms thick: two-dimensional materials are the thinnest substances it is possible to make today. They have completely new properties and are regarded as the next major step in modern semiconductor technology. In the future they could ...

It's Not an Illusion

Transforming Infrared into Visible Light


Researchers have developed a compound that can transform near-infrared light into broadband white-light, offering a cheap, efficient means to produce visible light. The emitted light is also exceedingly directional, a desirable quality for devices like microscopes that require high spatial ...


BASF creates fresh impetus for electrochemistry

Company establishes international competence network with outstanding experts from academic research


At a kick-off meeting in Ludwigshafen, BASF and its partners launched the research network electrochemistry and batteries. The declared aim is to jointly address fundamental questions relating to materials, components and systems for electromobility and electricity storage. “In developing the ...


LANXESS disinfectant effective against swine flu viral strain

New study from Giessen University


A recent study carried out on behalf of LANXESS has demonstrated the effectiveness of the disinfectant Preventol CD 601 against the swine flu viral strain. “The test results from Giessen University show that Preventol CD 601 can also play a major role in the fight against swine flu, which has now ...
