Making and breaking of chemical bonds in single “nanoconfined” molecules

Research team investigates reactivity of single molecules under controlled microscopic conditions

14-Sep-2022

Researchers around the world are working to develop efficient materials to convert CO2 into usable chemical substances – work that is particularly pressing in view of global warming. A team from the University of Göttingen, Germany, and the Ulsan National Institute for Science, South Korea, has ...

Unexpected quantum effects in natural double-layer graphene

International research team controls interaction of charge carriers

23-Aug-2022

An international research team led by the University of Göttingen has detected novel quantum effects in high-precision studies of natural double-layer graphene and has interpreted them together with the University of Texas at Dallas using their theoretical work. This research provides new ...

Building blocks of the future for photovoltaics

Research team observes formation of "dark" moiré interlayer excitons for the first time

19-Aug-2022

An international research team led by the University of Göttingen has, for the first time, observed the build-up of a physical phenomenon that plays a role in the conversion of sunlight into electrical energy in 2D materials. The scientists succeeded in making quasiparticles – known as dark Moiré ...

Quantum chemistry on the test bench

28-Jul-2022

In the future, more and more drugs, materials and catalysts will be designed, tested and developed using computer simulations alone. However, this will require algorithms that are accurate enough to predict real-life chemistry. One particular example is catalysis, where elementary rate constants ...

Sharp X-ray images despite imperfect lenses

New method for X-ray microscopy

03-Jun-2022

X-rays make it possible to explore inside human bodies or peer inside objects. The technology used to illuminating the detail in microscopically small structures is the same as that used in familiar situations – such as medical imaging at a clinic or luggage control at the airport. X-ray ...

Research describes fundamental principle of enzyme catalysis

How equal charges in enzymes control biochemical reactions

26-Apr-2022

It is well known in physics and chemistry that equal charges repel each other, while opposite charges attract. It was long assumed that this principle also applies when enzymes – the biological catalysts in all living organisms – form or break chemical bonds. It was thought that enzymes place ...

Novel quantum effect discovered in naturally occurring graphene

International research team finds atomically-thin carbon generates its own magnetic field

08-Oct-2021

Usually, the electrical resistance of a material depends very much on its physical dimensions and fundamental properties. Under special circumstances, however, this resistance can adopt a fixed value that is independent of the basic material properties and “quantised” (meaning that it changes in ...

How diphosphorus can be used for chemical reactions

Team from Göttingen and Frankfurt succeeds in stabilisation

29-Jul-2021

Chemical syntheses of new active ingredients or functional materials are based on the use of molecular building blocks. These must be simultaneously reactive but also stable enough to enable targeted incorporation into larger molecules. A research team from the University of Göttingen and the ...

Eco-friendly plastic from cellulose and water

Researchers create new kind of environmentally friendly bioplastic with hydroplastic polymers

26-Jul-2021

Plastics offer many benefits to society and are widely used in our daily life: they are lightweight, cheap and adaptable. However, the production, processing and disposal of plastics are simply not sustainable, and pose a major global threat to the environment and human health. Eco-friendly ...

High-resolution microscope built from LEGO and bits of phone

Research shows constructing microscope improves children’s understanding - enlightening, educational and fun

06-Jul-2021

Microscopy is an essential tool in many fields of science and medicine. However, many groups have limited access to this technology due to its cost and fragility. Now, researchers from the Universities of Göttingen and Münster have succeeded in building a high-resolution microscope using nothing ...
