How to make biocatalysts immortal

10-Oct-2019

Oxygen threatens sustainable catalysts that use hydrogen to produce electricity in fuel cells. Researchers from Bochum and Marseille have developed a way to combat this. Efficient catalysts for converting hydrogen into electricity in fuel cells for the energy transition are often based on ...

Determining the activity of noble-metal-free catalyst particles

08-Oct-2019

Noble-metal-free nanoparticles could serve as catalysts for the production of hydrogen from water. Because they are so small, their properties are difficult to determine. Chemists have developed a new method with which they can characterise individual noble-metal-free nanoparticle catalysts. The ...

Converting carbon dioxide to valuable resources with the help of nanoparticles

30-Sep-2019

Enzymes use cascade reactions to produce complex molecules from comparatively simple raw materials. Researchers have now copied this principle. An international research team has used nanoparticles to convert carbon dioxide into valuable raw materials. Scientists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in ...

How two water molecules dance together

14-Aug-2019

Although water is omnipresent, the interaction between individual water molecules is not yet fully understood. An international research team has gained new insights into how water molecules interact. For the first time, the researchers were able to completely observe all of the movements between ...

Lightning bolt underwater

01-Jul-2019

A plasma tears through the water within a few nanoseconds. It may possibly regenerate catalytic surfaces at the push of a button. Electrochemical cells help recycle CO2. However, the catalytic surfaces get worn down in the process. Researchers at the Collaborative Research Centre 1316 “Transient ...

Award for Nicolas Plumeré

25-Jun-2019

Bochum-based chemist Professor Nicolas Plumeré has been awarded the Luigi Galvani Prize by the Bioelectrochemical Society. The prize is awarded every two years to a researcher who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of bioelectrochemistry. Plumeré has successfully optimised ...

High reaction rates even without precious metals

21-Jun-2019

Precious metals are often efficient catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. However, it has so far been difficult to determine how efficient non-precious metal alternatives are. Non-precious metal nanoparticles could one day replace expensive catalysts for hydrogen production. However, it is ...

How acids behave in ultracold interstellar space

12-Jun-2019

Solvated acids tend to release a proton. However, they display more complex behaviour under space conditions. Bochum-based researchers from the Cluster of Excellence Ruhr Explores Solvation (Resolv), together with cooperation partners from Nijmegen, have investigated how acids interact with water ...

Applying precious metal catalysts economically

17-May-2019

Precious metal nanoparticles of platinum and gold are excellent catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. This new method makes it possible to save material. Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the Fritz Haber Institute Berlin have developed a new method of using rare and expensive ...

New class of catalysts for energy conversion

08-May-2019

“The theoretical possibilities seem almost too good to be true,” says researcher Tobias Löffler. Numerous chemical reactions relevant for the energy revolution are highly complex and result in considerable energy losses. This is the reason why energy conversion and storage systems or fuel cells ...
