Arylboronates made easy


Abandoning expensive and toxic materials in chemical synthesis: This is the goal pursued by scientists at the University of Würzburg. In the magazine "Angewandte Chemie", they describe a new way to achieve this goal. The synthesis of arylboronates to date has required metalliferous catalysts ...

Simulations for better transparent oxide layers


Touchscreens and solar cells rely on special oxide layers. However, errors in the layers’ atomic structure impair not only their transparency, but also their conductivity. Using atomic models, Fraunhofer researchers have found ways of identifying and removing these errors. Smartphones, tablet ...


A breakthrough for organic reactions in water


Green-chemistry researchers at McGill University have discovered a way to use water as a solvent in one of the reactions most widely used to synthesize chemical products and pharmaceuticals. The findings mark a potential milestone in efforts to develop organic reactions in water. Chao-Jun Li and ...


LANXESS increases prices for rubber chemicals


LANXESS will raise its prices worldwide for its rubber chemicals with effect from April 1, 2014 due to higher raw material prices and unfavorable exchange rate effects. “This is a good first measure to improve our margins - and bring them back up to an acceptable level,” says Luis López-Remón, ...


New sensor tracks zinc in cells

Shifts in zinc's location could be exploited for early diagnosis of prostate cancer


Zinc, an essential nutrient, is found in every tissue in the body. The vast majority of the metal ion is tightly bound to proteins, helping them to perform biological reactions. Tiny amounts of zinc, however, are only loosely bound, or "mobile," and thought to be critical for proper function in ...

UV-sensors from the oven

Scientists at Kiel University revolutionize the nanostructure production process


Placed in fire detectors and water treatment units UV-sensors can save lives; also in many areas of industry and environment the demand for these devices is rising steadily. Scientists of Kiel University have been able to ”bake” nanostructures within seconds, in order to fabricate very fast ...


New nanoparticles make solar cells cheaper to manufacture


University of Alberta researchers have found that abundant materials in the Earth's crust can be used to make inexpensive and easily manufactured nanoparticle-based solar cells. The U of A discovery, several years in the making, is an important step forward in making solar power more accessible ...


First South American plant for purifying soils contaminated with zinc and cadmium


Scientists from Wageningen (NL) and Lavras (Brazil) have found the first South American plant that can be used for purifying South American soils contaminated with the heavy metals zinc and cadmium. Native plants are strongly preferred over exotic plants for this purpose as they reduce the risk ...


Parallelogram shaped nanowires control light in two dimensions


A novel zinc oxide microwire optical resonator with parallelogram-shaped cross section has been made by chemists. The material can effectively control light in two dimensions, and could play the part of a building block in the development of optoelectronic devices.


BYK Additives & Instruments products win innovation awards


At the China Composite Expo in Shanghai, BYK presented its latest processing additives and application development for composite industry. The CCE-JEC Innovation Awards were presented for the eighth year in a row, with 32 composite products / solutions from30 companies nominated, and ten of them ...
