Nitrous oxide - anything but inert

Synthesis of phenols with nitrous oxide

10-May-2022

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 ...

New organocatalysts can compete with enzymes

Particular interest to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries

09-May-2022

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 ...

Researchers reveal another secret of photosynthesis

Chemical isomerism in Nature’s water splitting catalyst may explain the high efficiency of the photosynthetic reaction

01-Jun-2021

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 ...

New findings on energy conversion during photosynthesis

Remarkable and unexpected insights into the workings of the biological system: Quantum chemical calculations illuminate excited states of chlorophyll molecules

30-Oct-2020

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, ...
