Total synthesis of the sesquiterpene agarozizanol B
Starting from available chemicals, a German team of researchers successfully completed the total synthesis of agarozizanol B, an interesting natural substance found in agarwood. As described in the journal Angewandte Chemie, the key sequence in the relatively short synthetic pathway is a ...
Water in zeolites saves energy in the conversion of biomass into biofuel
Zeolites are extremely porous materials: Ten grams can have an internal surface area the size of a soccer field. Their cavities make them useful in catalyzing chemical reactions and thus saving energy. An international research team has now made new findings regarding the role of water molecules ...
New 2D-materials tailored by self organization and photopolymerisation
An international research team led by members from the Technical University of Munich, the Deutsches Museum, the Linköping University has developed a method to manufacture two-dimensional polymers with the thickness of a single molecule. The polymers are formed on a surface by the action of ...
Celonis has second-highest valuation among European start-ups
The first German start-up worth ten billion dollars was launched at TUM: after crossing this threshold, Celonis is now the second most valuable start-up in Europe. The provider of software that helps companies analyze and improve their business processes was established by three students with the ...
Platinum-free biocatalyst for fuel cells and water electrolysis
An enzyme could make a dream come true for the energy industry: It can efficiently produce hydrogen using electricity and can also generate electricity from hydrogen. The enzyme is protected by embedding it in a polymer. An international research team with significant participation of scientists ...
Neutrons "see" internal stress in components from additive manufacturing
3D printing has opened up a completely new range of possibilities. One example is the production of novel turbine buckets. However, the 3D printing process often induces internal stress in the components which can in the worst case lead to cracks. Now a research team has succeeded in using ...
Studies identify psychological factors in start-ups launched by researchers
Successful start-ups emerging from the world of academic research are a rarity in Germany. A research project has now conducted the first-ever investigation into the psychological factors impacting the processes when scientists launch companies. It shows that they often struggle to make the ...
Neutrons show effective lithium and electrolyte distribution in lithium-ion cells
In our smartphones, our computers and in our electric cars: We use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries everywhere. But their capacity drops after a while. Now a German-American research team has investigated the structure and functionality of these batteries using neutron diffraction: They ...
Powerful graphene hybrid material for highly efficient supercapacitors
A team working with Roland Fischer, Professor of Inorganic and Metal-Organic Chemistry at the Technical University Munich (TUM) has developed a highly efficient supercapacitor. The basis of the energy storage device is a novel, powerful and also sustainable graphene hybrid material that has ...
Sustainable processes could replace precious metals in silicone crosslinking
Silicones are tried and tested in the private and professional domains. In many applications, however, expensive precious metals are required as catalysts to transform the liquid intermediate products to durable elastic polymers. A research team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and ...
