Superconductivity at room temperature soon?

Researchers gain deeper understanding of mechanism behind superconductors


Physicists at Leipzig University have once again gained a deeper understanding of the mechanism behind superconductors. This brings the research group led by Professor Jürgen Haase one step closer to their goal of developing the foundations for a theory for superconductors that would allow ...

Newly discovered enzyme breaks down PET plastic in record time

Research finding could help make biological recycling more commercially viable


Plastic bottles, punnets, wrap – such lightweight packaging made of PET plastic becomes a problem if it is not recycled. Scientists at Leipzig University have now discovered a highly efficient enzyme that degrades PET in record time. The enzyme PHL7, which the researchers found in a compost heap ...

Heat storage: Scientists develop material that is stable, efficient and eco-friendly


A new heat storage material could help to significantly improve the energy efficiency of buildings. Developed by researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the University of Leipzig, it can be used to store surplus heat and release it back into the environment when needed. ...

Scientists develop new thermofluidic process for lab-on-a-chip applications

This will unlock groundbreaking solutions for nanotechnology, the manipulation of liquids in systems in tiny spaces, or in the field of diagnostics


Researchers at Leipzig University have succeeded in moving tiny amounts of liquid at will by remotely heating water over a metal film with a laser. The currents generated in this way can be used to manipulate and even capture tiny objects. This will unlock groundbreaking new solutions for ...

Consumer protection: Novel method for detecting hormonally active substances

Analytical method for risk assessment of products and food


Scientists from the Universities of Dresden and Leipzig have presented a new method for detecting hormonally active substances in food, cosmetics and water in the journal “Biosensors & Bioelectronics”. Hormonally active substances can cause serious health problems, including breast and prostate ...

New insight into “training” highly reactive chemical compounds

Are targeted attacks possible?


Highly reactive molecules cannot survive for long in nature. If researchers want to study them more closely, they therefore have to be produced under very specific laboratory conditions. Compared to “normal” molecules, many of these tiny particles have a distinguishing feature: they simply bind ...

Determine properties of mesoporous materials more precisely

“We Marry Disorder with Order”


We’ve all come across them before: those little bags of small balls that come packed together with new shoes or electrical goods. The balls are there to absorb moisture so as to protect the items from damage. “These materials act like a sponge,” explains physicist Professor Rustem Valiullin from ...

New algorithm finds the optimal bond breaking point for single molecules


Recent developments in atomic-force microscopy have enabled researchers to apply mechanical forces to individual molecules to induce chemical reactions. A research team from Spain and Germany has now developed a first-of-its-kind algorithm that determines the minimal force it takes to reach the ...

Spiders spin unique phononic material


New discoveries about spider silk could inspire novel materials to manipulate sound and heat in the same way semiconducting circuits manipulate electrons, according to scientists at Rice University, in Europe and in Singapore. A paper looks at the microscopic structure of spider silk and reveals ...


The spectacular diversity of nanoporous crystals


Scientists from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Universität Leipzig have discovered a unique behavior in the transport of molecules in nanoporous materials. They disproved the validity of a decades-old unquestioned assumption and demonstrated that each individual nanoporous crystal behaves ...
