Easy-to-handle nickel complexes for practical application in nickel catalysis
The use of nickel as a catalyst for the formation of chemical bonds is of great importance to the chemical industry - applications range from the production of fine chemicals to the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, insecticides and pesticides. For the production of nickel complexes, industry has ...
Remarkable and unexpected insights into the workings of the biological system: Quantum chemical calculations illuminate excited states of chlorophyll molecules
The sun sustains all life on earth through photosynthesis, the process by which plants and other organisms convert the energy of sunlight into chemical energy, stored in the bonds of organic molecules. A central challenge of modern science is to replicate this process using synthetic catalysts, ...
Nanometer-sized corundum particles can now be produced amazingly easily
Automotive catalysts, among others, and materials for dental implants could become more robust and easier to manufacture than ever before. This is because chemists at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr have found a way to produce corundum (also known as ...
Simple textiles can be used with catalysts to enable complex chemical reactions
In future, it will be much easier to produce some active pharmaceutical substances and chemical compounds than was the case to date. An international team working with chemists from the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr have immobilised various catalysts on nylon in a ...
Bayer Early Excellence in Science Award 2012: EUR 30,000 for young research scientists
The winners of the Bayer Early Excellence in Science Award 2012 have been announced. The prizes, each worth EUR 10,000, have been awarded by an independent scientific committee of the Bayer Science & Education Foundation. The Bayer foundation presents for the fourth time the Bayer Early ...
Prof. Ferdi Schüth (MPI für Kohlenforschung, Mülheim), Dr. Dirk Demuth and Dr. Wolfram Stichert (hte AG, Heidelberg) have been nominated for the award “Deutscher Zukunftspreis“
Thanks to a process developed by Prof. Dr. Ferdi Schüth, Director at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim (Germany), and the scientists and technologists of hte Aktiengesellschaft in Heidelberg (Germany) headed by Dr. Dirk Demuth and Dr. Wolfram Stichert, the search for new and ...
An international team of scientists, including two from Arizona State University, have taken a significant step closer to unlocking the secrets of photosynthesis, and possibly to cleaner fuels. Plants and algae, as well as cyanobacteria, use photosynthesis to produce oxygen and "fuels," the ...
Chemists in Mülheim devise a new way of optimising enzymes for industrial applications
Engineers are unlikely to tinker with the cooling system if they want to increase the size of an engine. Yet chemists at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research have adopted an approach similar to this in their efforts to optimise an enzyme for practical applications. They substituted two ...
It is currently estimated that natural gas resources will be exhausted in 130 years; however, those reserves where extraction is cost-effective will only flow for another 60 years or so. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research and at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and ...
A large number of different phosphatases, enzymes that split phosphate groups off proteins, play a key role in the regulation of cellular processes. Interest in substances that selectively inhibit specific phosphatases is thus correspondingly high. German researchers were recently surprised ...
