Stagediving with biomolecules improves optical microscopy

03-May-2018

Physicists from Dresden and Würzburg have developed a novel method for optical microscopy. Using biological motors and single quantum dots, they acquire ultra-high-resolution images. The resolution of conventional optical microscopy is limited by the fundamental physical principle of diffraction ...

Stable biradicals adding a new attraction to chemistry

Boron biradical in ground-state synthesized

26-Mar-2018

Researchers at the University of Würzburg in Germany have succeeded in twisting molecules so much that their double bonds have been completely destroyed. The result: unusually stable biradicals. Boron has a range of uses throughout everyday life, from laundry bleaches to heat-proof glass and ...

Newly designed molecule binds nitrogen

27-Feb-2018

Chemists from the University of Würzburg have developed a boron-based molecule capable of binding nitrogen without assistance from a transition metal. This might be the first step towards the energy-saving production of fertilisers. Whether wheat, millet or maize: They all need nitrogen to grow. ...

Boron based polymers

22-Jan-2018

Plastic bags from polyethylene, packaging from polystyrene, frying pans with Teflon coatings: everyday life is awash with polymers. Chemically, polymers are long, chain-like molecules with backbones based almost exclusively on carbon (and sometimes silicon) atoms. Other types of polymers are ...
