Chemical evolution in a tiny Gulf Stream

29-Jul-2020

Chemical reactions driven by the geological conditions on the early Earth might have led to the prebiotic evolution of self-replicating molecules. LMU scientists now report on a hydrothermal mechanism that could have promoted the process. Life is a product of evolution by natural selection. ...

An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

15-Oct-2019

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols. The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between ...

Molecular motors: Rotation on an eight-shaped path

Chemical engineers have developed the first molecular motor that enables an eight-shaped movement

04-Oct-2019

Molecular motors convert externally supplied energy into directional motions and are thus an important basis for future applications in nanotechnology. The first such motors were developed in the late 1990s, and since then a growing number of different systems have been established. A specialist ...

One transistor for all purposes

Organic semiconductors

22-Mar-2019

In mobiles, fridges, planes – transistors are everywhere. But they often operate only within a restricted current range. LMU physicists have now developed an organic transistor that functions perfectly under both low and high currents. Transistors are semiconductor devices that control voltage ...

Semiconductors: No support needed

Scientists at LMU are the first to fabricate freely suspended, ultrathin, organic semiconductor films

08-Mar-2019

In recent years, interest in the investigation of several organic semiconductor materials has steadily increased. These compounds promise easier and cheaper fabrication without the need for scarce elements, as well very favorable electrical switching characteristics and correspondingly high ...

Solid-state catalysis: Fluctuations clear the way

19-Feb-2019

LMU chemists have identified a mechanism that allows molecules to diffuse rapidly on the already crowded surface of a solid-state catalyst – an important capability, especially for efficient catalysis under industrial conditions. The use of efficient catalytic agents is what makes many technical ...
