How particulate matter arises from pollutant gases

International research project observes ultrafast particle growth through ammonia and nitric acid

15-May-2020

When winter smog takes over Asian mega-cities, more particulate matter is measured in the streets than expected. An international team, including researchers from Goethe University Frankfurt, as well as the universities in Vienna and Innsbruck, has now discovered that nitric acid and ammonia in ...

First machine-generated chemistry book published

Cooperation between Applied Computational Linguistics lab of Goethe University and Springer Nature

16-Apr-2019

Springer Nature published its first machine-generated book, compiled using an algorithm developed by researchers from Goethe University. This collaboration broke new ground with the first machine-generated book to be published by a scholarly publisher. The book is available as a free download ...

Inert Nitrogen Forced to React with Itself

26-Mar-2019

Direct coupling of two molecules of nitrogen: chemists from Würzburg and Frankfurt have achieved what was thought to be impossible. This new reaction is reported in Science magazine and opens new possibilities for one of the most inert molecules on earth. Constituting over 78 % of the air we ...

Duplicate or mirror? Laser light determines chirality of molecules

19-Mar-2019

Seven of the ten most frequent medications contain chiral agents. These are molecules that occur in right- or left-handed forms. During chemical synthesis both forms usually occur in equal parts and have to be separated afterward, because chirality determines the agent’s effect in the body. ...

Made-to-measure silicon building blocks

26-Jul-2018

The broad spectrum of applications for silicones ranges from medical implants and cosmetics to hydraulic oils and sealants to corrosion protection – an important topic in view of global corrosion damage to the tune of about US$ 3.3 trillion per year. To optimize silicon-based synthetic materials ...

Molecular libraries for organic light-emitting diodes

25-Apr-2017

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are promising candidates for flexible flat displays. By means of a screening process developed by chemists at Goethe University Frankfurt, it is now possible to identify more quickly lead structures with superior luminescence and charge-transport properties. ...

How to brew high-value fatty acids with brewer's yeast

15-Mar-2017

Short-chain fatty acids are high-value constituents of cosmetics, active pharmaceutical ingredients, antimicrobial substances, aromas or soap. To date, it has only been possible to extract them from crude oil by chemical means or from certain plants, such as coconut, using a complex process. ...

Unconventional superconductivity near absolute zero temperature

Quantum critical point could be the reason for high temperature superconductivity

02-Feb-2016

Researchers at the Goethe University have discovered an important mechanism for superconductivity in a metallic compound containing ytterbium, rhodium and silicon. As reported by Cornelius Krellner and his colleagues the underlying concept of the quantum-critical point has long been discussed as ...

New boron compounds for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs)

Luminescent blue boron-containing nanographenes are highly promising materials for portable electronic devices.

15-Jun-2015

Major advances in the field of organic electronics are currently revolutionising previously silicon-dominated semiconductor technology. Customised organic molecules enable the production of lightweight, mechanically flexible electronic components that are perfectly adapted to individual ...
