AI agent helps identify material properties faster

High-throughput X-ray diffraction measurements generate huge amounts of data - The agent renders them usable more quickly

21-Apr-2021

Artificial intelligence (AI) can analyse large amounts of data, such as those generated when analysing the properties of potential new materials, faster than humans. However, such systems often tend to make definitive decisions even in the face of uncertainty; they overestimate themselves. An ...

The role of hydrophobic molecules in catalytic reactions

Optimising electrochemical processes is one of the challenges in developing technologies for renewable energies. New research findings could provide assistance here.

15-Apr-2021

Electrochemical processes could be used to convert CO2 into useful starting materials for industry. To optimise the processes, chemists are attempting to calculate in detail the energy costs caused by the various reaction partners and steps. Researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and ...

New synthetic route for biofuel production

Compared to previous methods, the team has achieved a high yield and selectivity under less aggressive reaction conditions

09-Feb-2021

A German-Chinese research team has found a new synthetic route to produce biofuel from biomass. The chemists converted the substance 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) produced from biomass into 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), which could be suitable as a biofuel. Compared to previous methods, they achieved ...

Hydrogen-producing enzyme protects itself against oxygen

The discovery may make it possible to use oxygen-stable enzymes as hydrogen producers

04-Feb-2021

An international research team from the Photobiotechnology Research Group at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) led by Professor Thomas Happe and the Laboratoire de Bioénergétique et Ingénierie des Protéines (CNRS) in Marseille has been able to get to the bottom of this unique feature. They describe ...

Catalytic activity of individual cobalt oxide nanoparticles determined

Using a robotic arm

16-Dec-2020

Analyzing nanoparticles individually is a challenge precisely because they are so small. A new technique using electron microscopy and a robotic arm could make the process much easier. Precious metal-free nanoparticles could serve as powerful catalysts in the future, for example for hydrogen ...

How water helps the substrate into the enzyme

When water is present in tiny quantities it develops special properties

16-Dec-2020

An international research team has investigated water molecules in a tiny cage – and discovered previously unknown properties. Researchers from Bochum and Berkeley have investigated why cages can increase the catalytic activity of enclosed molecules. Using terahertz spectroscopy and complex ...

Measuring pH locally with terahertz spectroscopy

New method to determine a local pH value near a specific site of a biomolecule

24-Nov-2020

Nowadays, it is easy to determine an average pH for larger quantities of liquid. It is a challenge, however, to define a local pH value. Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum have developed a new method to determine a local pH value near a specific site of a biomolecule. A reliable measurement ...
