Milestone for organic chemistry: Long searched chemical compound prepared for the first time

Chemists report on the "neutral homoaromatic compound" that has only been suspected for more than 70 years


In a recent issue of the international journal Nature Chemistry, Prof. Dr. Johannes Teichert, head of the Professorship of Organic Chemistry at Chemnitz University of Technology, his research assistant Trung Tran Ngoc, and other contributors report on a so-called "neutral homoaromatic ...

Metallic five-membered ring pushes the boundaries of aromaticity

Researchers succeed in synthesizing a molecule that should not actually exist


How many atoms can an aromatic ring have if it contains only two electrons? The answer has recently been changed: five! For the first time, a team from chemistry has succeeded in synthesizing and describing a five-membered aromatic compound - an important class of substances in chemistry - by ...

World's Smallest Battery Can Power Computer with the Size of a Grain of Dust

Shrinking Tesla technology: An application-oriented method for an unsolved problem in microelectronics


Computers are getting smaller and smaller, just as current cell phones offer computing power similar to that of a laptop. And the trend toward miniaturization continues. Smart dust applications (tiny microelectronic devices), such as biocompatible sensor systems in the body, demand computers and ...

More effective catalysis for more sustainable products

Research team from Chemnitz and Berlin presents new concept for more reactive copper-based catalysts


Catalysts are used wherever chemical reactions take place. For example, in organisms during respiration, in the chemical industry during product manufacture or in the exhaust gas stream of the combustion engine. Regardless of the place of action, the same principle applies everywhere: catalysts ...

Making stresses in plastics and components visible

Research team led by TU Chemnitz develops dyes that continuously indicate stresses and their strength in plastics and components by changing colour


A research team led by Prof. Dr. Michael Sommer, holder of the Professorship of Polymer Chemistry at Chemnitz University of Technology, and PD Dr. Michael Walter, project leader at the Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS) at Albert Ludwig ...

Tracking Topological Conditions in Graphene

How carbon-based nanostructures can get a new functionalit


Scientists have already been able to demonstrate that graphene nanostructures can be generated by annealing of a nanostructured silicon carbide crystal for a few years. “These two-dimensional, spatially strongly restricted carbon bands exhibit a vanishingly small electrical resistance even at ...

Ionic defect landscape in perovskite solar cells revealed


The group of so-called metal halide perovskites as materials has revolutionized the field of photovoltaics in recent years. Generally speaking, metal halide perovskites are crystalline materials that follow the structure ABX3, with varying composition. Here, A, B, and X can represent a ...


Conductor turned insulator amid disorder


Some materials that are inherently disordered display unusual conductivity, sometimes behaving like insulators and sometimes like conductors. Physicists have now analysed the conductivity in a special class of disordered materials. Martin Puschmann from the Technical University Chemnitz, Germany, ...

Researchers Develop a New Type of X-ray Lens

A lamellar lens prototype has been successfully tested at DESY


Researchers have taken an important step towards developing a new X-ray lens made of diamond. A team of scientists from the Technische Universität (TU) Dresden and Technische Universität Chemnitz as well as from DESY have successfully tested a new lens design. The group working with DESY Leading ...

Printed solar cells on paper

Chemnitz University of Technology presents solar panels, which are printed with special inks with electrical properties on standard paper


These days, everyone talks about the use of solar energy for the generation of electricity. Conventional solar cells, however, use expensive materials and are manufactured under costly clean room conditions. Consequently, they can only deliver expensive electricity. Researchers at Chemnitz ...
