Superatoms as catalysts

Prof. Roland Fischer awarded Reinhard Koselleck Project funding from the DFG

05-May-2020

Precious metals like platinum are good catalysts – but they are expensive. While the chemical industry is trying to solve this cost issue by developing ever-smaller catalyst particles, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is taking an entirely new approach: the targeted ...

Benzene in cherry flavor - where it comes from and how to avoid it?

Flavorings containing benzaldehyde can develop benzene under the influence of light

30-Mar-2020

In 2013, the Stiftung Warentest found harmful benzene in drinks with cherry flavor. But how did the substance get into the drinks? Was the source benzaldehyde, an essential component of the cherry flavoring? And if so, how could the problem be solved? A new study by the Leibniz-Institute for Food ...

New synthesis approach for soluble silicon clusters

Anticipating silicon solar cells with significantly improved efficiency

18-Nov-2019

Theoretical calculations indicate that under certain conditions silicon can endow solar cells with a much higher efficiency. Small silicon clusters may provide a source of accordingly modified silicon. However, to date these clusters have not been accessible in soluble form, a prerequisite for ...

Artificial neural network resolves puzzles from condensed matter physics

Which is the perfect quantum theory?

16-Jul-2019

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural ...
