Synthesis of phenols with nitrous oxide
The emission of various greenhouse gases threatens the global environment, and scientists around the world are increasingly involved and committed to address this issue. While many research groups focus on carbon dioxide (C02) or methane (CH4) revalorization strategies, a team led by Dr. Josep ...
Particular interest to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries
Organocatalysis not only provides an imaginable alternative to classical catalytic processes, but is even more efficient in many cases - and thus of particular interest to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. More than 20 years ago, Ben List and his Scottish colleague David MacMillan found ...
New method enables simple tritium labeling and could provide added value to the discovery and development of pharmaceuticals
Tritium 3H, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, is commonly used in medicinal chemistry as a label to follow the course of a drug in the human body. Chemists like to use the technique to evaluate drug candidates and their metabolism. However, synthesis of the radiolabeled molecules is ...
Chemical isomerism in Nature’s water splitting catalyst may explain the high efficiency of the photosynthetic reaction
Green hydrogen is often said to be “the petroleum of tomorrow”. For a climate-neutral energy supply in the future, we must turn away from carbon-based sources and harness solar fuels. The road ahead is long and requires, among other things, a precise knowledge of the functional principles of ...
Researchers Succeed in Predicting NMR Parameters with DLPNO Approximation
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is one of the most important analytical techniques used in chemical, pharmaceutical, and biomedical research as well as in materials sciences. It provides detailed information about the structures of molecules in solution, which is, however, indirect. Hence, ...
Green hydrogen - produced from water electrolysis by using sustainable electricity - is getting more attention due to its potential to be used as energy carrier as well as building block for various industrial processes. Among both half-reactions of water electrolysis, Oxygen Evolution Reaction ...
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 ...
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 ...
