Imitating photosynthesis in plants? If we were to accomplish this, mankind would have a little less to worry about. Chemists from the University of Würzburg have now made progress on the road to achieving artificial photosynthesis. The structure that has been developed in the university's ...
Computers with no need of cooling? They haven't come into existence yet. However, physicists of the University of Würzburg are paving the way for them: In the American scientific journal "Science", the researchers now present a semiconductor that transmits electric current without heating up in ...
X-rays can be used to image hidden structures such as bones of the human body. But now, a team of Würzburg physicists has succeeded in demonstrating the electronic structure of an interface in a solid for the first time. Why should such interfaces be researched? "They are important for the ...
Structure of artificial light harvesting antenna determined
An international team of researchers has modified chlorophyll from an alga so that it resembles the extremely efficient light antennae of bacteria. The team was then able to determine the structure of these light antennae. This is the first step to converting sunlight into energy using an ...
Lily of the valley fragrance: electronic surface structure determines interactions with scent receptors
An interdisciplinary team headed by Reinhold Tacke (Inorganic Chemistry, University of Würzburg), Philip Kraft (Scent Research, Givaudan Schweiz Inc.), and Hanns Hatt (Cell Biology, University of Bochum) have attempted a "scent prediction" to test their computer model of lily-of-the-valley ...
As part of its program "Sustainable Bio-production," Germany's Federal Ministry of Education & Research has awarded a consortium a grant to study the feasibility of oxynitrilase technologies as a more efficient method to manufacture chiral building block chemicals currently required by the ...
Highly ordered dye aggregates through stepwise organization
Plants and a whole series of bacteria can trap energy from sunlight. To harvest the light as effectively as possible and to convert it into chemical energy these species have highly developed photosynthesis systems. Hundreds of dye molecules aggregate together in highly ordered nanostructures. ...
