Activity of fuel cell catalysts doubled

Modelling leads to the optimum size for platinum fuel cell catalysts

04-Jul-2019

An interdisciplinary research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has built platinum nanoparticles for catalysis in fuel cells: The new size-optimized catalysts are twice as good as the best process commercially available today. Fuel cells may well replace batteries as the power ...

Spin-off develops magnetic cooling system for extremely low temperatures

Cooling for quantum electronics

11-Jun-2019

The start-up kiutra is the first company in the world to have succeeded in developing a permanent magnetic cooling system to reach temperatures close to absolute zero. Such temperatures are, for example, required for the operation of quantum computers. The system was set up by a team of ...

Toxic and aggressive, but widely used

Investigations with neutrons settle scientific dispute about the structure of fluorine

29-Mar-2019

In toothpaste, Teflon, LEDs and medications, it shows its sunny side – but elemental fluorine is extremely aggressive and highly toxic. Attempts to determine the crystal structure of solid fluorine using X-rays ended with explosions 50 years ago. A research team has now clarified the actual ...

Public-sector research boosts cleantech start-ups

Study highlights successes of public-private partnerships in the USA

21-Mar-2019

Cleantech start-ups in the USA that cooperate with government research agencies outperform their competitors both in terms of patents and funding. That is the conclusion of a study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Maryland and the University of Cambridge. In the ...

New approach facilitates spectroscopy on individual molecules

At the limits of detectability

08-Mar-2019

While spectroscopic measurements are normally averaged over myriad molecules, a new method developed by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) provides precise information about the interaction of individual molecules with their environment. This will accelerate the ...

How power-to-gas technology can be green and profitable

Economists map out economically viable path to renewables-based hydrogen production

28-Feb-2019

Hydrogen production based on wind power can already be commercially viable today. Until now, it was generally assumed that this environmentally friendly power-to-gas technology could not be implemented profitably. Economists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Mannheim ...

Chemical data mining boosts search for new organic semiconductors

18-Feb-2019

Organic semiconductors are lightweight, flexible and easy to manufacture. But they often fail to meet expectations regarding efficiency and stability. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are now deploying data mining approaches to identify promising organic compounds for the ...

Artificially produced cells communicate with each other

Models of life

21-Jan-2019

Friedrich Simmel und Aurore Dupin, researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), have for the first time created artificial cell assemblies that can communicate with each other. The cells, separated by fatty membranes, exchange small chemical signaling molecules to trigger more complex ...

Photochemical deracemization of chiral compounds achieved

The vanished mirror image

20-Dec-2018

Enantiomeric molecules resemble each other like right and left hands. Both variants normally arise in chemical reactions. But frequently only one of the two forms is effectual in biology and medicine. Hitherto, completely converting this mixture into the desired enantiomer was deemed impossible. ...
