New characterisation methods to enable an accurate assessment and prediction of the effects on humans and the environment
A new EU research project in which the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) is playing a leading role is investigating the safe and sustainable use of the versatile nanomaterial graphene. BAM is developing new characterisation methods in its competence centre nano@BAM to enable ...
"The past fiscal year 2022 was very challenging yet successful for Eppendorf"
In the past fiscal year 2022, the globally operating Eppendorf Group recorded an increase in consolidated revenue to 1.23 billion euros (previous year: 1.1 billion euros). This corresponds to an increase of 12.1 percent (previous year: 13.8 percent). Operating profit amounted to 225.6 million ...
Helene von Roeder appointed Chief Financial Officer and Executive Board Member, effective July 1, 2023
Marcus Kuhnert has decided to step down as Chief Financial Officer and Member of the Executive Board of Merck as of June30,2023. He will continue to serve as a Member of the Executive Board of E.MerckKG until July 31, 2024. The Board of Partners of E. Merck KG has appointed Helene von Roeder ...
Research project in Germany aims to improve the stability of this novel battery type
Lithium-air batteries, also known as lithium-oxygen batteries, are candidates for the next generation of high-energy electricity storage devices. Their theoretical energy storage capacity is ten times that of conventional lithium-ion batteries of the same weight, but they are not yet chemically ...
The computer will figure out what to ignore
Exact solutions are often impossible in materials physics. In an international research cooperation involving TU Wien and Saitama University in Japan a technique has now been developed to make unsolvable quantum calculations solvable on certain scales. In physics, one often has to deal with ...
Mechanically driven reactions run completely without solvents: this sustainable process is now to be ready for the market
If reactions for the chemical industry were to take place without solvents, an enormous amount of environmentally harmful or even toxic waste could be saved. Prof. Dr. Lars Borchardt has shown how this can be done: Together with his team, he realizes mechanically driven reactions in catalytically ...
Cigarette filters are the world’s most common form of litter. Researchers from the University of Gothenburg can now show that the filters leak thousands of toxins and plastic fibres that are toxic to aquatic larvae. The researchers are therefore calling for these filters to be completely ...
Investment in Research and Development
Global chemical company OQChemicals has successfully started up its new pilot plant for esters in Oberhausen, Germany. This state-of-the-art test facility enables the company to manufacture small quantities of esters that are tailored to customer needs for test purposes. The new products can ...
For the rational design of new material compounds, it is important to understand the mechanisms underlying their synthesis. Analytical techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance and spectroscopy are usually employed to study such mechanisms in molecular reactions. However, reaction pathways ...
“This goes beyond what can be done in conventional semiconductors or any other two-dimensional electron system”
Researchers at RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich have uncovered important characteristics of double quantum dots in bilayer graphene, an increasingly promising material for possible applications in quantum technologies. The team has demonstrated near-perfect particle-hole ...
